Hip Hop Dominate Streams in 2016

Drake’s album Views still atop the charts

It’s already gone double platinum, in large part because of the RIAA’s new rules on streams. (1,500 on-demand audio and/or video song streams = 10 track sales = 1 album sale.)

So it’s no surprise that Drake is all over the most streamed songs of 2016 lists.
