The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, grossing a total of over 957,000 copies in its first week in the United States alone. Graduation' day arrives: Kanye West exploits his growing pains Archived May 14, 2009, at the Wayback Machine. More than any other song on the entire studio album, the epic stadium-rap power ballad "I Wonder" was the most influenced by U2.

This synth-driven production approach has since been adopted by artists including Future, Young Chop, and Metro Boomin.

Due largely to these factors and the inclusion of layered electronic synthesizers, West believed that his record took hip-hop in a different direction. The album was picked by readers of Entertainment Weekly as the best of 2007, receiving 41 percent of the votes on the magazine's year-end poll. He has composed for brands including Vogue, Tens, Friday The 13th and Baby Audio, as well as synth arrangement on movies for Netflix and Paramount. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. While written by West, who envisioned its concept and chorus while riding an elevator, the soul-baring Jay-Z dedication " Big Brother" stands as the only song on Graduation that he didn't produce.

and also on the advance copy of West's debut studio album The College Dropout, which due to a leak was never released. In terms of lyricism, he simplifies some of his rhymes after touring with The Rolling Stones on their A Bigger Bang concert tour and discovering he could not captivate the audiences as well with his most complex lyrical themes.West injected distorted synth- chords, house beats, electro- disco rhythms, and a wide array of audio-effects into his hip-hop production. Graduation won the award of Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album at the American Music Awards of 2008, while also counting towards West earning the award for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist. West had the last laugh: Graduation sold nearly a million copies in one week, and rap became the playground of emotional heroes like Kid Cudi, Lupe Fiasco, Drake and J. graduation' is the third installment in the kanye west series of ground breaking albums, targeting every school kid, from those that have dropped out (debut album, 'college dropout'), to those late registrants (sophmore album 'late registration'), to those that have gone on and completed school (current album 'graduation').
