Kanye West Dominates Spotify As Most-Streamed Artist With ‘Donda 2’ And ‘Jeen-Yuhs’ Releases

Ye stands atop the list despite not releasing his ‘Donda 2’ on the streaming platform.

Ye is slaying it on Spotify. The artist formerly known as Kanye West topped the platform’s most-streamed artist list for two consecutive days, HipHop DX reports. He reached the mountain peak with the help of Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, a new Netflix documentary, and Donda 2.

His dominance on Spotify comes despite Ye’s announcement via his social media channels on Feb. 17 that his sequel album would only be available on his own platform, the Stem Player.

“Today artists get just 12% of the money the industry makes. It’s time to free music from this oppressive system. It’s time to take control and build our own,” he wrote.

The music mogul released more than a dozen Donda 2 tracks Thursday (Feb. 24) on Stem Player, Complex reports. They included versions from Donda 2 event that took place in Miami this week.
