Drake’s latest release, Honestly, Nevermind, is dominating the hip-hop news cycle right now, as per any Drake release. Everyone and their mother is taking to social media to share their thoughts on the album, with reviews ranging from praising to trashing the release.

However, despite the mixed audience reactions, Drake continues his trend-setting ways with his seventh studio album. In just about an hour after its release, Honestly, Nevermind stole another Apple Music record. After setting a record for first-day streams, the 14-track album became the biggest dance album on Apple Music.

A departure from Drake’s typical style, Honestly, Nevermind is full of dance and house beats. It features just one guest appearance on the album, with 21 Savage on the final track. Both fans and fellow rappers are voicing their mixed opinions on the new release. J. Cole voiced his support, calling the album “phenomenal”. However, Charlamagne Tha God ripped the new Drake release, stating that it was “elevator music”.

Apple Music Records Before “Honestly, Nevermind”

Drake is by no means new to taking home awards, especially not with streaming giant Apple Music.

The Toronto rapper still holds the record for the biggest album on Apple Music from his 2021 Certified Lover Boy. Sitting firmly behind that is his 2018 album, Scorpion, taking home second for first-day streams. Indeed, he even holds the biggest song record, with “Girls Want Girls” taking home the most first-day streams in history.

With this latest release, Drake also added his own personal notes to the album. Released exclusively to Apple Music, it defines how this release came at a sensitive point in the rap titan’s life. He stated within the notes: “My urge for revenge wins the game against my good guy inside every single fckn time.”
