“Starboy” went live at digital partners on Thursday September 22. Between Thursday and Sunday, it amassed over 17 million streams globally and 6.5 million streams in the United States alone, shattering the previous record in the process. Meanwhile, at radio, “Starboy” stands out as the “One Week Most Added Record of All Time in North America,” becoming #1 Most Added at Top 40, Rhythm, Urban, and Hot AC—yet another history-making accolade. This sets the stage for Starboy to become one of the biggest albums of 2016.
