“Donda”, Kanye West project set for 300k in the first week, sets 2021 streaming bar

60 million streams in one day. That’s how well Kanye West’s DONDA did on Apple Music, making it the most-streamed release on the service in 2021. The total made it to the third-highest ever to hit Apple Music. The album was on top of the charts in 152 countries on Apple Music’s album charts, Complex reports, and took over 19 of the Top 20 spots on the Top 100 Global Songs chart.

Apple Music wasn’t the only place that DONDA streams took flight. Kanye earned over 94 million streams on Spotify, the second-most all-time.

The album is projected to move over 300,000 first-week units. According to HITS Daily Double, those numbers will be put in a number one debut for Kanye’s DONDA album. The album will be his best performing release since Yeezus in 2013.

HITS details DONDA is following right behind J. Cole’s The Off-Season, which did 308 million first-week audio streams, becoming the biggest total of 2021 so far. DONDA surpassed the other new releases of the week, including Halsey’s If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, which is projected at 115,000 on the high end.
