US rapper and musical genius Kanye West definitively sent the world on a wild ride with his latest musical creation, Donda. When he wasn’t hosting a number of over-the-top listening sessions, he was delaying the release and leaving his fans on the edge. It seems all the madness was worth it as the album is proving to be quite a hit.

Donda latest: Kanye tops the charts

Just a few days ago American musician Kanye West was setting himself alight at another action-packed Donda listening session. The Jesus Walks musician was having so much fun showing off his eccentric self at these Chicago listening sessions that his ample fans and supporters were starting to wonder whether the album was ever going to be released.

On Sunday 29 August, Donda was finally shared with the world and it seems all that waiting and wondering was definitely worth it because according to reports, the album is breaking records only two days after its release.

According to TMZ, Donda just became Apple Music’s #1 album in 130 countries. The publication also reports that Kanye’s Jail, on which he features Jay Z, is the number 1 streamed song on Spotify with 4.277 million streams. Making it the biggest debut for any song this year.
