Kanye West is the first artist to have ten studio albums reach one billion streams on Spotify

After his 2008, fourth studio album, 808s & Heartbreak hit one billion streams, this marks the rapper’s tenth album to surpass the milestone.

After the release of his record-breaking album Donda and more streams on his older album 808s & Heartbreak, Kanye West now has ten albums with over a billion streams on Spotify. These include: The College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, 808s & Heartbreak, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Watch The Throne, Yeezus, The Life Of Pablo, ye, and Donda. West’s albums that are yet to hit the figure include: JESUS IS KING, compilation album Cruel Summer, and collaborative album KIDS SEE GHOSTS.


The new record is particularly impressive, considering over half of the albums were released over ten years ago, before streaming took off. This puts Kanye West above both Drake and Eminem, each with nine studio albums that have over a billion streams.
