The artist formerly known as Kanye West was named the most-streamed artist on Spotify over the weekend, despite the fact that his newest album DONDA 2 was not released on streaming services.

Chart Data confirmed on Twitter that Ye was the No. 1 most-streamed artist on US Spotify on February 26 — the same week his DONDA 2 Listening Experience took place in Miami and a day after a majority of the record arrived on his very own YEEZY Stem Player. The rise in his streaming numbers also coincide with the release of the second episode of his Netflix documentary, jeen-yuhs.

Last week’s DONDA 2 Listening Experience featured guest appearances from The Game, Migos, Jack Harlow, Playboi Carti, Fivio Foreign, Alicia Keys, Marilyn Manson, DaBaby and Pusha T. Fans who want to listen to DONDA 2 will need to purchase the YEEZY Stem Player online.

In related news, Ye, Denzel Curry x slowthai and Conway The Machine lead this week’s Best New Tracks.
