Drake is having one hell of a month. It hasn’t even been three weeks since the rapper released his fourth studio album Views, but it feels like Drake has amassed a lifetime of achievements in its wake. The album has topped the Billboard charts both weeks it was eligible, Drake got his first No. 1 song, he both hosted and performed on Saturday Night Live, and Views was streamedmore than 250 million times when it was first released on Apple Music.

Now, Drake adds another honor to his ever-growing list — Spotify has confirmed that the “One Dance” singer is now the platform’s most-streamed artist of all time. Drake takes the Spotify throne from Justin Bieber, who broke records on the streaming service in the past few months thanks to the success of his album Purpose.

Drake’s dominance on Spotify is nothing new. In December, the platform announced that Drake was their most-streamed artist of 2015.
