Kanye West has a very good mind when it comes to business, as the rapper has built his own empire. However, he is not all that great when it comes to releasing music on time. A recent rumor regarding his upcoming ‘Donda’ album was also blamed on hackers.
The rapper is notorious when it comes to the release of his albums and that includes his highly-anticipated album called ‘Donda.’ Kanye West recently held listening parties for his long-delayed album Donda. However, the album didn’t actually arrive on July 23rd and that certainly did not sit well with fans.
Kanye West also did not perform at Rolling Loud in Miami recently, which disappointed fans as well. The listening party shattered Apple streaming records as well. His first listening party was in Las Vegas with a second in Atlanta, where he remained in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to finish the album.
During the second listening party, Kanye West didn’t drop his ‘Donda’ album, which infuriated fans. However, it seems the second listening party performed remarkably well. According to NME, the second ‘Donda’ listening event reportedly had over 5.4 million people tuned in concurrently to watch the event. Thus it is Apple Music’s most-watched livestream ever.
This was almost double that of the first ‘Donda’ listening party, which garnered a total of 3.3 million viewers. Kanye West’s upcoming album is set to drop on August 15th this time. We will have to wait and see if Kanye West finally drops the ‘Donda’ album as fans are getting impatient.
