The Predictions Are In! Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Album Set to Sell…

Published: Monday 30th Aug 2021 by Sam

Kanye West‘s ‘Donda’ album is on course for what could be the year’s biggest sales debut.

Full story below…

The long-delayed set was finally uncaged on Saturday to much fanfare.

Prior to that point, the headline-grabbing rapper had drummed up buzz by way of a series of stadium “listening events” – which saw him fine-tune and perform the LP.

All, it seems, has created the perfect storm around the album, which is West’s 10th.

For, the first-week sales predictions are in and the numbers are massive.

Hits Daily Double reports that the 27-track set is on course to launch in the US with sales of 300,000 equivalent units. A figure that puts the project in contention to serve as the year’s best-selling debut.

The numbers are fuelled by the album’s epic performance on streaming platforms.

Indeed, the LP has earned almost 100 million first-day streams on the global Spotify count – rendering it the second biggest album debut of all-time.

‘Donda’ has staged a takeover of the entire top 10 on Spotify in the US; it also occupies all but three spots on the platform’s Top 25 in the States.

Over on Apple Music, the album has taken over the top 20.

The stats are similar on the global tally too.

Suffice to say, his marketing muscle is delivering.

        The way you read the fool. lmfao

    That’s not really saying a whole lot actually. You’re making it seem like it’s gonna go platinum in a week and it’s not lol. It’s not even close to gold status.

    • BGKC August 30, 2021

      A 45 year old mentally ill rapper selling 300K in his first week is nothing to scoff at. 25 year old artists with #1’s and top 10’s can’t even sell that much these days. Kanye’s power is REAL.

    • DC3 FOREVER August 30, 2021

      And this is going off of 1 day worth of sales

  4. Wwwd August 30, 2021

    If they wanted bigger numbers then he wasn’t happy about it being released without his permission

  5. Liam August 30, 2021

    The album is good I had to listen to it in 2 parts due to too many tracks but he slayed from beginning to end with this album 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  6. Nellie August 30, 2021

    Number manipulation like his ex bff’s the Carter’s 🤣

  7. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 August 30, 2021

    Come through Flavor Ye 🤳🏽 I’m enjoying the album! 🎶 Giving me 808’s & Heartbreak feels in places which makes sense cause it’s DONDA ❤️ Too early for a review, Stench lol…just drink yo Earl and eat yo biscuits ☕️ 🤣 🎧

  8. Hehe August 30, 2021

    Y’all will praise overhyped trash by this self-hating cooñ no matter what. When Drake drops he will have plenty of excuses.

  9. UHoesFunny August 30, 2021

    Wow 😮 those numbers are HUGE. Nobody’s selling like this anymore. Especially not a racist turkey neck I know…this is MAJOR and the album is 🔥🔥🔥🔥 it for sure will be a #1 album on the billboards. Congrats Ye!!!

    His marketing muscle, indeed…

  11. Clarks0o00ñ August 30, 2021

    Everybody dropping albums except that ugly bab00n called normani

    RCA planning on dropping normani after she tanked. We love to see it

    • Grapefruit August 30, 2021

      Normani is too busy in Italy twerking with Megan and Ciara. Yew mad?

      • Clarks0oñ August 30, 2021

        Megan and ciara have albums, normani doesn’t.

        Why would I be mad about a girl who thought she was gonna be huge like beyonce but ended up like rita ora?

  12. Aj August 30, 2021

    Why the f*** does anyone support this s***? It proves Americans are dumb.

  13. Charli Cheer Up August 31, 2021

    I smell #PAYOLA.
