Drake’s dominance over the 2018 charts has helped him to set new music industry history as the first artist to be crowned the world’s best-selling artist in multiple years.
In 2018 the 32-year-old dominated the global charts with his double album, Scorpion.
He also topped streaming platforms Spotify and Apple Music and got millions and millions of views on YouTube with his various music videos from the album such as In My Feelings.
Now officials at the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) have certified his achievement.
“Drake has had an incredible, record-breaking year, one that is more than worthy of the title of Global Recording Artist of the Year,” Frances Moore, chief executive of IFPI.
