Kanye West’s rollercoaster ride of a rollout for his tenth studio album DONDA was certainly well worth the wait.
After the LP’s surprise release Sunday, it’s already enjoying massive success after a few days on digital streaming platforms.
According to Chart Data, the 27-track mosaic raked in nearly 100 million streams on the Global Spotify Chart Aug. 29 — marking the platform’s second-biggest album debut of all-time. Ye’s latest effort comes second to Drake’s 2018 double-album Scorpion, which reeled in 132 Million streams in its debut.
DONDA also set another record on Apple Music, as the LP hit No. 1 on the platform’s U.S. chart and many others on its release day. It would soon go on to reach No. 1 on Apple Music in over 130 countries — a mark unmade by any other artist in music history.
Along with its streaming success, West also had a huge payday. DONDA sold 327K units in its first week and is expected to claim a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200. West is also on track to achieve the biggest album debut of the year.
DONDA is finally here. No more waiting, no more guessing — just pure bliss. Listen to Kanye West’s tenth studio album DONDA below!
