Guess who’s back in the headlines and causing quite a stir? None other than the iconic Kanye West! Known for consistently making waves with his controversial statements, questionable fashion choices, and high-profile feuds, the hip-hop sensation is once again at the center of attention. Whether it is the anti-Semitic comments which severed his ties with A-list brands like Adidas and Balenciaga or the white lives matter T-shirt,  Ye never fails to attract controversy. However, this time, Ye is making headlines not for any controversial antics but for his musical endeavors.

After leading a quiet life, Ye is back in the news, but for all the good reasons. He continues to dominate the music industry, firmly securing his position at the forefront. While there are no signs of the rumored album, ‘Man Across the Sea’, he is still serving his fans by featuring on songs. One was with Fivio Foreign for his new song ‘Concussion’ and another might be on The Legendary Traxster’s album, ‘CHICAGO.’ Amidst all the rumors surrounding his alleged comeback with another album, 9 of the icon’s albums hit a billion streaming mark. But there was one left which has now hit this benchmark, surpassing other legendary musicians.
