It looks Drake isn’t the only person living the #YOLO life – nearly half a million illegal music downloaders are, too. In a recent report from Spin, it turns out the Drizzy’s single “The Motto” is the most illegally downloaded single in the States.
A report polling the most music pirating-friendly countries recently revealed that the YMCMB rapper’s single from last year’s Take Care is the most illegally downloaded songs in the USA. The song was illegally downloaded 458,038 times during the study’s six month tracking period.
Drake wasn’t the only superstar to rank at number one on this list. The report also indicates that Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne ranked at number one as the most downloaded LP in the US (71,132 illegal downloads), while Rihanna’s Talk That Talk was the most downloaded LP worldwide (1,228,313 illegal downloads).
Ironically, all three aforementioned albums have been certified platinum by the RIAA and other agencies in various countries.
