*Drake closes out the year with yet another record to his name.

The rapper has become the first artist to reach one billion plays on Spotify for a single track with his mega hit “One Dance,” reports Billboard.

The milestone was reached this week, just days after Drake took all three No. 1 spots on Apple Music’s year-end charts, with his album “Views” topping Rihanna’s “ANTI,” Adele’s “25,” Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” and Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” to lead Apple’s Top 25 Albums chart.

“One Dance,” also featuring Wizkid & Kyla, has also become Drizzy’s biggest smash, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for ten weeks and landing at No. 1 on Apple’s Top 25 Songs chart, outpacing Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” Rihanna’s “Work” (featuring Drake), Flo Rida’s “My House” and Lukas Graham’s “7 Years.” Both charts compile streams and download data.

Drake fourth album opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in June and topped charts in the U.K., Australia and various markets around the globe.

So far, the album has earned him four American Music Awards (from a record 13 nominations), and trophies in major categories at the Billboard Music Awards and MTV Europe Music Awards.

He heads into 2017 with eight Grammy nominations and “Views” has just been certified quadruple platinum in the U.S, an honor marking 4 million units sold with 1,500 streams counting as one certifiable unit.
