It’s official. Drake just broke Apple Music’s first-day streaming record with his recent release of “God’s Plan”.

The track is from his new two song  E.P Scary Hours, in which the other track is “Diplomatic Immunity”.

“God’s Plan” did 14 million streams on Apple Music worldwide on its first day.

In addition, Drizzy also broke a record on Spotify for the most plays in a single day, weighing in at a heavy 4,326,679 plays.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to us. After all, Drake was the most played artist on Spotify in 2017. And heck, he’ll probably hold that title in 2018 too. Drake is absolutely killing it.

The man knows how to grab attention. Even the fact that he released a two song e.p is weird, and piques your interest. why not just release two separate singles?

Scary Hours in now in the spotlight, and with a white hot spotlight comes contreversy.

Recently, Texas producer Rabit came out and said that Drake stole the artwork from his “25th Communion Tour” poster, and used it for the e.p cover of Scary Hours.

Well, let’s look at the two pieces side-by-side and decide for ourselves- shall we?

Rabit posted the comparison shots on IG, and well- the images kind of speak for themselves. It’s literally an exact design rip off. The only thing different is the color used for the font.

Rabit used pink, and Drake used red.

So Drake might have to take an L on the artwork- but let’s talk about “God’s Plan”.

This song vibes hard. It features a  gospel organ pad, and a typical laid back “40” beat with plenty of snap and bounce. Drake brings his signature half  singing/ half rapping approach to the tune, and it flows super well.

There’s some great bars too-

She say, “Do you love me?” I tell her, “Only partly”

I only love my bed and my momma, I’m sorry
Fifty dub, I even got it tatted on me
81, they’ll bring the crashers to the party
And you know me
Turn the O2 into the O3, dog
Without 40, Oli, there would be no me
Imagine if I never met the broskies

This verse has a ton of great references in it.

Fifty dub, I even got it tatted on me

This is a reference to his friend and entourage member Fif, who was murdered last year. Drake got a tattoo of his face on his arm in order to remember him.

Here’s where things get really interesting.

81, they’ll bring the crashers to the party
And you know me
Turn the O2 into the O3, dog

so this whole stanza is basically different references stacked upon each other. It really shows off Drake’s creativity.

So, crashers is u.k slang for “shooters”. The “81” is in reference to when Kobe Bryan scored 81 points against Drake’s hometown team, the toronto raptors.

The “O2” is an entertainment complex in south east London, which Drake performed at in late 2017 for his “Boy Meets World Tour”. It’s one of the biggest arenas in the U.K-  and when Drake says “Turn the O2 into the O3” he’s continuing his basketball reference.

In one layer, he’s talking about going from a two pointer to a three pointer. In the next layer, he’s saying he made the O2 arena an even bigger deal when he performed there.

Without 40, Oli, there would be no me
Imagine if I never met the broskies

This is nice sentiment, and shows Drake’s humility. Noah Shebib a.k.a “40” is Drake’s main producer and engineer. “Oli” is Oliver North, his manager and record label co-founder.

This is a great song- and the amount of attention it has received thus far validates that.

Keep it up Drake!
