Tupac Shakur “All Eyez on Me” becomes first album from 1996 to reach 3 billion streams on Spotify

2Pac's “All Eyez on Me” has racked 3 billion Streams on Spotify.

Tupac Shakur's ‘All Eyez on Me has been streamed more than 3 billion times on Spotify alone.

2PAC smashes a new Spotify streaming record.

It was revealed on Tuesday (January 30), “Twitter X” that the late Icon Tupac Amaru Shakur 1996's album has become the first LP from that year to reach three billion streams on Spotify.

Remarkably, other notable rap albums from that excellent year in Hip Hop have far fewer plays. Jay-Z, Damon Dash and Kareem “Biggs” Burke, album from that year, Reasonable Doubt, has accrued just over 200 million streams on Spotify, though the album wasn’t available on the platform until 2019.

Nas’ 1996 sophomore effort “It Was Written” with 550 million streams on Spotify. Fugees released The Score in 1996, and that album has over one billion streams — a big number, but far short of 2Pac territory.


The release of his fourth album ‘All Eyez on Me’ released on 13 February 1996. It became Pac's second #1 album and sold half a million copies in the first week of its release, signaling the arrival of a new type of rap star – one who was admired by everyone, not just rap fans. A double album spanning 27 tracks.

The album was also nominated for Best Rap Album at the 1997 Grammy Awards and certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2014.
