Kanye West and his devoted fans have had a whirlwind this past few months as the anticipation for his 10th album, ‘Donda,’ reached incredible heights due to multiple delays, endless listening events, and speculation about included features—but all of it has paid off in a big way thanks to his recent sales figures.
According to @Billboard, Kanye West’s album “Donda” has officially become the number one album in the US, selling 327,000 copies in its first week. These figures also indicate that Kanye has the biggest debut of the year, surpassing Olivia Rodrigo, who sold 295,000 copies in June. That isn’t the only record Ye has broken; by reaching number one, he has become the first artist to have all 10 albums debut at number 1 on billboard top 200 album.
According to recent reports he has two singles from ‘Donda’ currently in the Top 10 on the 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 featuring Andre 3000, that was released without his permission by his rival Drake.
Meanwhile, Ye’s manager recently stated that there is a ‘Donda’ tour in the works, but it will be very different from any tour that fans are used to. Fans speculate it could be in a form similar to what Kanye created for his three listening events this summer.
