West recently submitted the album, as well as a song from it to be considered for the GRAMMYs. “Hurricane” with Lil Baby and The Weeknd could be nominated for Record of the Year, while the album as a whole might be up for Album of the Year.
Rivaling West’s Donda, Drake‘s Certified Lover Boy reached the one billion stream milestone on Spotify back on October 2nd, despite only releasing on September 3.
After the release of Donda, West announced that he is launching a California prep school, Donda Academy.
The school’s official mission is to “prepare students to become the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators,” by providing kids with “a world-class education that includes a rigorous core curriculum, and an emphasis on sustainability, creativity, critical thinking and problem solving.”
