Donda also pulled in more than 94 million global streams on Spotify
The much-anticipated and heavily delayed album was released on Sunday 29 August and set a 2021 record for the global streaming service.
Donda pulled in the third highest number of streams ever to be recorded on the platform in the span of 24 horas.
It follows after J. Cole’s 2018 album KOD, which amassed 64.5 million streams within 24 horas, e Drake'S 2016 album Views com sobre 63.5 million streams.
Donda also topped a record 152 countries on Apple Music’s charts on the first day, while occupying 19 of the Top 20 spots on its Daily Top 100 Global songs chart.
The album also earned more than 94 million worldwide stream on Spotify, the second-most all-time for the streamer.
Na segunda-feira (30 agosto), one day after the album was dropped, Ye claimed that his label, Universal Music Group, released his 10th studio album without his approval and “blocked” a song from being on the record.
“Universal put my album out without my approval and they blocked ‘Jail 2’ from being on the album," ele escreveu.
Both Manson and DaBaby’s involvement on Donda has caused controversy. Manson is currently facing multiple lawsuits from women who have accused him of sexual assault and abuse. He has denied all allegations.

DaBaby was condemned over a string of homophobic remarks he made at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami last month. The rapper initially apologised before deleting his apology. He has since appeared to mock the notion that he is being “cancelled” over his remarks.
West had earlier claimed that DaBaby’s manager, Arnold Taylor, was preventing his feature from being cleared and was failing to answer calls from West or his team.
Taylor denied this, stating that he had not received any calls from West and that he cleared the song within “two seconds” of receiving it”.
Despite West’s claims, “Jail 2” has since appeared on streaming services along with the rest of his album.
Other artists to feature on the album include The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Kid Cudi, Jay Electronica and Young Thug.
Donda was released following Ye’s third listening party in Chicago, where he brought DaBaby and Manson on stage. During the event, the rapper also re-enacted his 2014 casado with former partner Kim Kardashian during a play of the track “No Child Left Behind”.
The album is named after West’s mother, Donda West, quem morreu em 2007 envelhecido 58.
