As Drake prepares to dominate in 2017, the superstar rapper reminded us of why he’s still one of the hottest rappers in the game. On Sunday (Jan. 8), Drizzy went on his Instagram page to announce a milestone in his career.
According to Drake (via Pollstar numbers), his 2016 “Summer Sixteen Tour” is now the highest-grossing hip-hop tour of all time with a overalll gross of $84.3 million off 54 shows. The trek also featured his What a Time to be Alive partner Future as well.
This historic achievement adds to his other monumental accomplishments. Among them is his Views project becoming the Top-Selling Album of 2016 with 4.14 million equivalent albums sold. In addition, his dancehall jam “One Dance” reached 1 billion streams on Spotify.
As far as touring, Drake is not done. The OVO Sound leader is heading overseas on his European “Boy Meets World” Tour. Joining him on the trek will be Atlanta rhymer Young Thug. The trek kicks off Jan. 21 and will make 26 stops, including Amsterdam, Glasgow, London, Oslo, Paris and more.
Drake has more music in the works as well. The 6 God plans to drop More Life very soon. Judging by the Instagram photo below, it looks like the project is nearly completed.
