Kanye West Ties Record For Consecutive No. 1 Albums

Will KIDS SEE GHOSTS Break it?…

Kanye’s recent album Ye moved 208,000 equivalent album units in its first week which earned him his eighth No. 1 album in a row on the Billboard 200 chart.

With this feat, Kanye has now tied the record set by Eminem and The Beatles. His first album, The College Dropout, charted at No. 2 the first week, but since then all of Kanye’s albums have entered the charts at No. 1 after their first week.

Success for the album didn’t seem like a sure thing, as people had threatened to boycott Kanye’s music after his “slavery was a choice” antics and more. However, it looks as though fans put their frustrations aside and bought, streamed or downloaded his album.

It’s been a GOOD few days for ‘Ye
