The popularity of Kanye West, star among the stars, is well established, and it is not this streaming record that will invalidate this fact.
A unique performance
Although most of his career as Kanye West took place before the era of streaming, the rapper remains among the most listened to artists in the world. This data is proven in figures: the artist from Chicago released his tenth album Donda at the end of August, it was certified gold two weeks later by the RIAA in the United States (500,000 copies sold).
In the world, this album also touched a lot of people, just as it led its fans to immerse themselves in the rest of its discography. As a result, Kanye West is the first artist in the world to have ten albums that have exceeded one billion streams on Spotify alone . Another achievement in Ye’s dizzying record career.
On Donda , which was entitled to a deluxe version, the most popular tracks are Hurricane , the first single, as well as Praise God , Moon and Off The Grid , all with over 100 million streams on Spotify.
