Kathmandu- Drake has broken yet another streaming record thanks to the release of his latest album, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’.

On Friday (June 17), the rapper surprised fans with the release of his seventh studio album. The 14-track record arrived on streaming platforms at midnight just hours after he announced its arrival on Instagram.

Leaning more on a house infused sound, with production coming from Black Coffee and Gordo, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ has divided fans. Some love the creative U-turn Drake has taken, while others are not so on board with his decision to make an LP full of club music

One fan on twitter wrote that the album “isn’t house enough for any house heads and not rap enough for any of the rap heads”. It has had over 4,300 likes so far.

Drake has seemingly responded to those criticising the album in a new video, shot at what looked to be a release party for ‘Honestly, Nevermind’. “It’s all good if you don’t get it yet,” he said. “It’s all good. That’s what we do. That’s what we do, we wait for you to catch up. We’re in here though, we caught up already. On to the next. My goodness!”

Regardless of the mixed reviews, the album has shattered the record for first-day streams worldwide for a dance album on Apple Music, according to a press release.

In the release, the streaming service also indicated that Drake holds the records for the biggest album in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide, with ‘Certified Lover Boy’; the second biggest album by first-day streams worldwide on Apple Music, with ‘Scorpion’; and he also holds the record for the biggest song in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide, with ‘Girls Want Girls’ featuring Lil Baby.
