Kanye West’s ‘DONDA’ Headed For Record-Breaking Debut with Over 300k Units, Tops Apple Music Charts In Over 130 Countries, The Most No. 1 Entries In History & Biggest First-Week Sales of 2021

Posted August 31, 2021

Good things come to those who wait and in the case of Kanye West‘s tenth studio album ‘DONDA‘ which arrived on Sunday, that saying is proving to be more than true.

The album–which was set to arrive weeks ago but was delayed multiple times–finally arrived on Sunday despite Kanye revealing that his label released the project without his approval.

Nevertheless, the project has proved to be a success for Ye, and has brought in some major numbers while breaking some major records in the process.

According to early estimates from the ever-reliable HITS Daily Double, the 27-track set is expected to debut with over 300,000 units in its first week. That would make it the biggest first-week sales album of 2021, 

DONDA is currently No. 1 on Spotify and has topped the Apple Music charts in over 130 countries, the most No. 1 entries in history.

The project hit streamers two days after Kanye’s third listening event at Chicago’s Soldier Field. The album features appearances from JAY-Z, The Weeknd, Kid Cudi, Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Young Thug, Don Toliver, Roddy Ricch, Lil Yachty, and more.

Official numbers will be released in a matter of days but its safe to say the album will be another No.1 for Yeezy.
