When Kanye West launched his debut album Yeezus, there was a lot of hype about how it would redefine the fashion world.
The rapper was making an entirely new style, but there was also a lot about it that made it seem like a hip-hop album.
And when the album was released in late September, it had already sold almost 5 million copies worldwide, and Kanye had become one of the most successful artists in music history.
So how did it all end?
After weeks of hype, anticipation and anticipation, West ended up releasing a limited edition of the album.
The limited edition was only available in Japan for a week and, as of now, has sold 1.2 million copies.
In the US, it sold 1 million copies in a week, and was the top-selling album of all time in the first week of sales.

“There was a big wave of hype,” says Kanye West.
“And when you’re in the moment and you’re really excited, you get caught up in that, and that’s what I think happens when you have a new album.”
But it wasn’t just the limited edition that sold well; the album itself sold well too.
Kanye was selling a record that wasn’t even his best work, but it was a great way to end the year and cement his status as one of hip-tune’s greatest.
There’s nothing like seeing Kanye perform live.
In fact, he performed on stage at his own concert, in October, which sold out within minutes.
“It’s like a really cool place to be and it was just amazing to see him on stage,” says Yeezys lead singer Ty Dolla $ign.
“He just seemed really good.
He was doing the show like a veteran.
You can’t do that onstage.”
But Kanye’s performance on stage didn’t go unnoticed.
“We had to do a little thing with our show and it came out of nowhere,” says Dolla.
“They came in with the crowd in a lot more of a frenzy and were like, ‘Yeezy, you gotta do this thing!'”
This kind of attention from the crowd meant that fans began to become aware of Kanye’s music, and in turn, they started to start buying his music.
In August, the Yeezams album sold more than 1 million in its first week, with Kanye and Yeezy each earning more than $2 million in revenue from sales of the record.
Yeezymoo had been a big hit, but now that it was on sale, it was going to become a big seller as well.
This was a record sold out in minutes.

“That was really the first time in my career where I was able to actually sell that many records,” says West.
He explains that the album sold out instantly, and he was thrilled about the reaction.
“I think the fans were really passionate,” he says.
“The crowd was really enthusiastic.
It’s just a whole new level of excitement and excitement that we all feel every time we see a new Kanye record.”
But when the limited-edition Yeezia came out, it seemed like it would be the last record for a while.
The album was sold out for a full week.
The Yeezylive had sold a lot, but that didn’t seem to be the case for the limited editions.
The second Yeezox sold out almost as fast.
“When the second album came out and I did the show, the record sales were way higher than the first,” says Ty Dollaz.
“A lot of the fans didn’t even know that it had come out, and then when it did, it took off.
I mean, people went out of their way to buy the record.”
This was not the case with the first Yeezytunes limited edition, which was only sold for a few weeks.
But with the second edition, the hype grew, and fans were buying the record as soon as it was released.
“This was the first album that people wanted to hear,” says the lead singer.
“People were really excited to see me perform, to see a live performance of my new song ‘Gangnam Style’ on stage, and I was like, this is the last time, and this is going to be really good.”
The limited-issue album was selling even faster, and now it was becoming clear that Yeezeezys popularity was just beginning.
But Yeezotron was a step in the right direction.
The first Yeezie was released on September 1st, and YEZY was released a week later.
The two records were a great combination, and they were both released in the same week.
“All I wanted to do was just see if I could keep it up,” says East West.
