Kanye West put a ton of hype around the release of DONDA, his latest epic album. He’s trying hard to snag a Grammy Award for it now, and Ye has the streaming clout to warrant such an accolade at this point.

West’s album was full of controversy and strange listening parties. Now that it is out, fans are enjoying it at their leisure. That won’t stop Kanye’s constant grind as he is rumored to have a song with Eminem on bootlegger’s hard drives.

According to Chart Data, fans are enjoying DONDA to its fullest. The record now has 1 billion streams on Spotify. This marks Ye’s fast rising album to hit that number.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
