Drake’s viral ‘Scorpion’ staple, ‘God’s Plan,’ goes diamond
As per the lyrics of Scorpion staple, “God’s Plan,” sometimes Drake “feels good” and sometimes he doesn’t, but odds are he’s feeling pretty damn good right now. The artist’s rap reign holds strong as “God’s Plan” newly reaches diamond certification status, signifying a total of 10 million units sold. One of the producers instrumental in the development of the viral hit, Boi-1da, broke the news of the milestone on Instagram. “We did that!” Boi-1da wrote. “God just keeps on blessing us. Thankful for everyone involved in this masterpiece full circle. @champagnepapi I don’t know how you do it but you never fail, salute!!”
“God’s Plan” charted a consecutive 11 weeks in the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, causing Drake to break the record for most weeks spent at the peak of the chart in a single year. Drake also became the first artist to surpass 50 billion streams across all global streaming platforms this year, a feat assisted by the release of Scorpion, which went platinum the very same day it was released. Scorpion served as the launchpad for many record breaking accomplishments for Drizzy this year, including Drake’s achievement of one billion plus global streams in one week.
