Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2’ was the last track from his sixth studio album, Yeezus, which featured Kim Kardashian in the music video. A decade after its release, Kardashian and her eldest, in an attempt to remember their father on Thanksgiving day, lip-synced “I’m tryna perfect, And ay ayo we made it to Thanksgiving, So ay, maybe we can make it to Christmas”. The wave that this TikTok created, probably contributed to the streaming hike of the song on Spotify, making it cross an 800 million milestone. 

A few weeks back, North West posted another video on TikTok recreating one of Kim Kardashian’s iconic looks.

While Kanye West is reaching milestones on Spotify, his nemesis, Taylor Swift broke her own record on the very same streaming platform.
