J. Cole’s latest album KOD is really getting all the buzz it deserves.
The album, which has a strong message to the youth about drug usage, obsession with money and more, is on course to do big numbers in the first week, the details of which we should know in a day or so.
But the Dreamville boss has broken a streaming record with the title and first song on the album. The track ‘KOD’ was streamed 4.2 million times on Spotify, scoring the biggest opening day for a song ever. Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ held the previous record at 3.8 million followed by Kendrick Lamar’s ‘DNA’ at 3.8 million. See details from Chart Data below.
