Kanye West is Making Millions Teasing His ‘Donda’ Album Release
Kanye West is making millions teasing his ‘Donda’ album release.
The 44-year-old rapper debuted his newest album, “Donda,” last night with a listening party — his third event overall — in Chicago’s Soldier Field.
According to Billboard, Ye had already made $12.75 million from his past two “Donda” parties in Atlanta.
In July, over 42,000 fans filed into Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium. Each paid between $25 and $100 a ticket. Apple Music livestreamed the bash for free with the promise that his album would be launched the next day.
But that didn’t happen and he hosted another listening party later that same month. The second one broke Apple Music livestream records and had 5.4 million viewers. About $7 million came cashing in from in-person merchandise sales, and Billboard estimated that both parties in Atlanta grossed between $1.5 million and $2.7 million each for the record producer.
