XXXTentacion has broken Taylor Swift’s spotify record for the biggest single day stream for his single Sad, just days after he was shot and killed in Florida.
According to Billboard, the song was streamed 10.4 million times on Spotify alone, which now makes it the biggest single-day stream for any song. The previous record held by Taylor Swift for her song Look What You Made Me Do earned 10.1 million streams on the platform.
The song was played 4.4 million times in the US, and the figure not only rivals, but seems to have beaten Drake’s numbers for God’s Plan, which racked up 4.3 millions plays. Spotify have yet to announce if XXXTentacion holds the record for that as well.
Sad is also the rappers biggest hit on the Billboard to date, getting as high as No.7 earlier in the year. The song remains his only top 10 hit, and helped make his Album debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200.
Spotify recently removed XXXTentacion music on its platform as part of what the company called “The Hate content & Hateful Conduct Policy.” They have since reinstated the song.
