#Residents, the last few months have been a whirlwind for Kanye West and his devoted fans as expectations surrounding his 10th album ‘Donda’ reached incredible heights due to the many delays, endless listening events and speculations about included features – but all of it has paid off in style thanks to his recent sales figures.
According to @Billboard, Kanye West is officially number one in the country with ‘Donda’ selling 327,000 copies in its first week. These numbers also mean that Kanye has the biggest debut of the year and topped former manager Olivia Rodrigo, who sold 295,000 back in June. However, this is not the only record that Ye broke, as hitting number one now means he is the first artist of this century to have 10 albums debuting at number one on the Billboard 200.
In terms of streaming, Kanye’s numbers are also record high. ‘Donda’ accumulated over 775 million global streams, with 442 million from Spotify and 242 million from Apple Music worldwide. The album also set the record for hitting number one in 152 countries worldwide, while his live-streaming events broke records with each release.
As we also reported, he has two singles from ‘Donda’ currently in the Top 10 on Billboard 100, with “Hurricane” at number 6 and “Jail” at number 10. There is also the much talked about leak of “Life Of The Party ”By Kanye with Andre 3000, released without his permission by his rival Drake.
Meanwhile, the Yes manager recently stated that there is a ‘Donda’ tour on the way, but it will be very different from any tour that fans are used to. Fans are wondering if it could be in a form similar to the one Kanye created for his three listening events this summer.
