J. Cole’s New Album Broke Spotify’s Streaming Record


We broke down 2014 Forest Hills Drive and nominated the project for 2014’s Album of the Year. Numbers never lie, and after Cole boasted over the top first week sales — it looks the rapper has another accomplishment to add to his resume. According to Digital Trends, 2014 Forest Hills Drive accumulated over 15.7 million streams in its first week on Spotify, surpassing One Direction’s previous record of 11.6 million streams for their album Four. Congrats J. Cole!
