"God's Plan" continues to reach Mount Olympian heights.
Imagine if he never met the broskis. Dark days indeed. As it happens, Drake's "God's Plan" continues to boast heaps of replay value, appealing to all varieties of demographic. We've already covered its impact at length, and now, the Scorpion lead single has scuttled its way toward another major milestone. According to one of the track's producers, Cardo, the hit single is currently eligible to be 7X platinum in the United States. For some context, one hundred and fifty streams constitute one paid download. Quick maths allot that "God's Plan" has amassed a staggering listener-base, that many artists can only dream of.
Granted, tracking streams can sometimes feel like a bit of a grey area, but it's still a testament to Drake's sheer artistic ubiquity. The video alone currently sits at 441,222,823 views on Youtube, with many praising its inspirational message. The sentiment is echoed by Cardo himself, who expresses pride and disbelief in a single caption. "Damn we really did that," he writes, eager to collect his platinum plaques.
While "God's Plan" has established itself as one of the year's biggest singles thus far, Drake's follow up "Nice For What" continues to pick up steam. It admittedly feels tailored to a more specific demographic than its predecessor, but it's another indication that Drake's Scorpion may very well be a more optimistic drop than his previous albums. Either way, we'll find out in June, which is shaping up to be one of hip-hop's most monumental months in a minute.
