Travis Scott is no stranger to major commercial achievements. His highly anticipated new album UTOPIA is already on its way to being one of the biggest albums of the year. It had by far the biggest first-week sales of any rap album in 2023 pushing nearly 500k units on the way to securing the number one spot. After pushing another 100k units in its second week it remained at the top spot and could challenge for a third straight week at number one. Meanwhile, Scott has also been zeroing in on a major Spotify listener milestone that he hit for the first time overnight.

Not only did Travis Scott jump up to number 6 in the world by monthly listeners but he also broke a record. Hit 74 million listeners is officially the highest mark any hip-hop artist has ever achieved on the platform. In the comments of a post sharing the landmark achievement fans speculate on who could break it next. "Drake gon be number 1 when For All The Dogs drops," one comment suggests. "Nicki finna come and break his shit when her album drop," another reads.

Whether that material ends up on a project of his own or being used by other artists is yet to be seen. What do you think of Travis Scott becoming the most listened to rap artist on Spotify?
