However, despite Drake’s album going down an absolute storm on the whole, others hit out at Spotify for shoving the LP down their throats when they’d paid for premium, which is supposed to be ad-free.

Numerous social media users shared screenshots of the many ads on the page, while others demanded refunds.

The streaming numbers were certainly helped not only by the amount of tracks – Scorpion is a double album featuring 25 songs – but by the huge campaign that people were complaining about, which had the hashtag, #ScorpionSZN.

As reported by Variety, Drake was featured on the Spotify homepage, as well as “on the cover of RapCaviar, Beast Mode, Today’s Top Hits, Morning Commute and others—including ones where his music isn’t even featured.”
