Drake

Drake's sixth album, Scorpion, broke one-day streaming records in the U.S. -- with its 25 tracks played more than 132 million times on its day of release. But not everyone is a Drake fan on streaming service Spotify.

The heavy promotion of Drake's album on the streaming service has resulted in demands for refunds from paying customers, WENN.com reports.

Drake Scorpion cover

Drake was honored with the first-ever "artist takeover" on Spotify, which means his picture is featured on the cover of virtually every song in certain playlists -- whether the music is by Drake or not.

Musician Matt Gerrard messaged Spotify's Twitter account, writing: "Wondering when i get my refund for my AD-FREE premium subscription since you've flooded my account with ads this month for this crappy Drake album."

Another user, Kieran Hemming complained: "when you pay for premium membership you pay for no advertising. This 'drake spam' is advertising. Can us paid users expect any kind of refund?"

A Reddit user claimed he received a month's refund after he contacted a customer care worker with a complaint. He posted screenshots of the refund on Reddit.com.

However, WENN reports that Spotify has not adopted a refund policy due to the complaints.

  • sunni_daze

    The B side is trash. He give us R&B smooth.

    His face was everywhere even on a gospel playlist and they had the nerve to have Finesse as the first song and the rest was Jesus’s music. They had to know folks were going to be pissed. Imagine everytime you click Drakes face pops up... That’s why 95% of the time I’m not paying for music

    LMAO give those babies their little money back ... I bet if it was Jason Aldeen or Taylor Swift it would have been viewed as a notification not an advertisment

    I mean if you pay for ad free... I dig it!
    So Spotify paid the 40 million for the album? What other reason for this?

  • SumthinSweeter

    Now THIS is something to protest over!

  • SweetTEE

    Yea, I would be pissed if my gma wanted to hear some kirk franklin and this ****** song came on cursing and talking bout thots. Disrespectful.

  • SweetTEE

    If those people paid for ad free service, then that is what they deserve. Not everyone is a fan of funky a** Drake.

    I heard God's Plan last night while I was waiting in the drive-thru and I thought I was listening to a bleating goat.

    Why is this clown popular?

  • TMW

    I like “Nice for What.” That’s all I got ?????

  • Sid

    Looks like Nicki and Drake’s time is up

  • Miss Thang

    aww i like some of his stuff :)

  • free

    a spotify ad and drake's face on a playlist are two totally different things.

  • Prince Zuko

    Drake is trash he use to be nice when he first came out now he's pure garbage

  • Applebootay

    I like it....a LOT....I use to kinda hate him and I don't know why, seems like the older I get, the more I like the youngins music. Volume 1 or the A side is rapping and the Volume 2 B side is more singing...I mean its 25 songs in total....you're bound not to like everyone...but for the most part, its a solid album...I almost can't get pass the track "I'm Upset"...its like I want to know every single word....LOL

  • Candance

    I still love Drake! and I loved the album!
