Drake's Summer Sixteen show highest-grossing hip-hop tour ever

Drake's Summer Sixteen tour last year was the highest-grossing hip-hop show of all time, smashing Kanye West's previous record.

The tour, which ran through North America between July and October, bagged a total of $84.3 million (£69.2 million) over 54 concerts. The previous hip-hop record was set by Kanye West and Jay Z's Watch the Throne tour in 2011 and 2012, which grossed around $10 million (£8.2 million) less than Drake.

Drake was also the most streamed person on Spotify in 2016. The musician released his latest album 'Views' in the spring and it reached No.1 across the globe.
