On Sunday (Sept. 5), Billboard reported that Yeezy’s Donda album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after moving 309,000 equivalent album units in its first week. 37,000 of that total came from pure album sales. The album marks the biggest first-week sales total of 2018, with Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour album moving 295,000 equivalent album units when it was first released three months ago.

Kanye has become one of only seven artists in chart history to release 10 chart-topping albums (alongside the Beatles, JAY-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, Eminem, and Elvis Presley). Donda also gave him the largest streaming week for an album in 2021, surpassing J. Cole’s The Off-Season. Halsey’s new album debuted at No. 2.
