Kanye West’s ‘DONDA’ Streaming Event Breaks Apple Music Records
According to a report by TMZ, Kanye West’s ‘DONDA’ album listening party event held last week at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record, with over 3.3 million viewers tuning in on their screens.
“That’s a heck of a lot more than the previous record, we’re told, which was set by Gucci Mane and Jeezy in their highly-anticipated Verzuz battle earlier last year — at a reported 1.8 million viewers. Kanye practically doubled the number as a solo act!”
Ye’s DONDA event was, however, a one-time deal meaning it aired live for people to stream, but hasn’t gone back up on Apple for re-watching.
The source claims that once Kanye releases DONDA the Atlanta performance will be posted to Apple for fans to watch again.
DONDA is the tenth studio album by Kanye West. Named after West’s late mother, it is scheduled to be released on August 6, 2021, through GOOD Music and distributed by Def Jam Recordings.
