Records are made to be broken,right? Well that’s just what happened. J.Cole set a record for 1st day streams of ‘K.O.D.’ then a week later Post Malone comes behind him and shatters it!
Post Malone’s sophomore album Beerbongs & Bentleys has set a new first-day streaming record on Spotify. The album has shattered the record both globally (78,744,748) and in the U.S. (47,930,039), according to a tweet from Spotify. This puts him ahead of J. Cole’s KOD, which set the record in the U.S. just last week with 36,656,086 streams.
