In just three days, Drake's newly-released album, Scorpion, has already broken the single week U.S. streaming record, according to Chart Data.

As a result, the 25-track double album, which was released on Friday, June 29, is on pace for a monumental first-week sales total, which, according to Hits Daily Double, is projected to fall somewhere between 870-920k equivalent album units.

Drake breaking records left and right is certainly nothing new, nor is it surprising in any way, shape, or form, but the amount of added exposure and promotion that streaming giants Apple Music and Spotify have lent the Toronto superstar over the past three days has been, without question, a huge boon to these numbers.

Of course, releasing a 25-track album doesn't hurt either.

In other record-breaking news, Scorpion is already eligible for double-Platinum certification.
