Kanye West’s upcoming album Donda is still nowhere to be found, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t already broken a few records.
Last Friday’s Donda listening party at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Atlanta—where Yeezy played what appeared to be some of his long-awaited project that a rep has since confirmed to Pitchfork will release on Aug. 6—saw the musician stand in front of a packed crowd as they got a first taste of his new music. And fans at home, through an Apple Music livestream, got to see it all unfold too, as they they themselves made history.
The event has now broken an Apple Music Global Livestream record, according to TMZ, with 3.3 million people watching Ye rock his red get-up and walk around to his new project. This surpasses the 1.8 million viewers who tuned into Jeezy and Gucci Mane’s Verzuz battle last year.
The only other record Donda has certainly broken so far is the longest anyone has stayed in the Mercedes Benz Arena, as TMZ reports that Ye may very well be living at the location.
The album itself, which was set for release next Friday, was rumored to be pushed back by both Justin Laboy and Malik Yusef, before TMZ reported the Aug. 6 date and Pitchfork confirmed it with a rep on Monday.
