So far 2016 has been a big year for Drake, big by the standards of any artist, and December will make it an even bigger one for the Toronto rapper. Between the touring, tracks and album streaming, and the success of his latest album Views Drizzy is on fire. With 2 hits that quickly climbed to #1 not that long ago, One Dance by Drake and Work by Rihanna which features the 6 God, Drake has had full forward momentum in recent months and it doesn’t look like that will change any time soon. 2016 will end on a very positive note just like the year began.
One Dance, the hit track off of Views, could very well hit 1 billion streams before the current year ends as it stands at more than 950 million right now. This catchy tune is already Spotify’s most played song ever, and each day many millions of streamers just add to the numbers. Drizzy also has a playlist project in the works called More Life that is expected to be released next month, and whenever the Toronto rapper releases music the public quickly starts listening and the tracks start climbing the charts. There are still few details known about the project but everything Drizzy touches seems to turn to gold and platinum and this is not expected to be any different.
In early December the 59th annual Grammy Award nominees will be announced, and Drake is already a sure bet for nominations in a number of various categories. To date the 6 God has been nominated at least 27 times in his career, and Views is seen as the biggest album and title for 2016. The hit track One Dance off the album is almost unstoppable and sure to earn the Toronto rapper plenty of kudos.
