Kanye West's latest album 'Donda' continues to dominate multiple charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, where he has two songs in the top 10.
Kanye West has added two more top 10 singles to his resume.
After debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this weekend in what is now the biggest album debut of 2021, the trailblazer’s 10th studio album Donda has secured him his 19th and 20th songs to reach the top-10 milestone on the Hot 100. Both “Hurricane” and “Jail” have cracked the top of the charts, based almost exclusively off streaming numbers, Billboard reports.
“Hurricane” sits at No. 6 on the chart, while “Jail” lands at No. 10, as both songs appeared at Nos. 1 and 3 on Streaming Songs with 29 million and 24.2 million streams, respectively.
“Jail” features contributions from Jay-Z and Francis and the Lights, while “Hurricane” features vocals from The Weeknd and Lil Baby.
But “Jail” and “Hurricane” aren’t the only Donda tracks to touch down on the Hot 100 this week. Of the 27 tracks on Donda, Kanye charted 23. Outside of those in the top 10, Kanye charted five additional songs in the top 20: “Off The Grid” at No. 11, “Ok Ok” at No. 12, “Junya” at No. 16 “Moon” at No. 17, and “Praise God” at No. 20.
Additionally in the top 40, “Jesus Lord,” “Jonah,” “Believe What I Say,” “God Breathed” and “Remote Control” are sitting pretty. Kanye’s lowest-charting song off Donda on this week’s chart is “Tell The Vision,” which sits at No. 90.
Kanye is now the 21st artist in history to reach the milestone of having 20 top-10 singles. And with his 12 latest inclusions in the top 40, Billboard notes that Yeezy now has the fifth-most top 40 entires ever, only sitting behind Drake (122), Lil Wayne (85), Elvis Presley (81), and Taylor Swift (80).
It was already revealed this weekend upon his No. 1 album achievement, that Kanye’s latest album earned 309,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. for the week ending Sept. 2.
And on a global scale, Yeezy has earned 775 million global streams in Donda’s first week and 520,000 equivalent units globally via streaming, topping the album charts in 11 countries. According to a press release, Donda marks his first No. 1 in France, Italy, and Sweden.
