Kanye West’s ‘Ye’ Album Debuts At No.1

Kanye West is one person who is hardly seen smiling but now, the rapper has at least one reason to.

Kanye’s latest album ‘Ye’ has topped the Billboard Hot 200 making it his eighth album to top the charts. The album which was released on June 1 has seen West make chart history, tying Eminem as the only acts with eight consecutive No. 1 debuts.

It seems that every single track on Kanye’s seven-track album has debuted in the top 40 of the Hot 100 chart which is pretty great considering all the controversy that followed when the album was dropped.

 

Coming in second on the chart is Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys while Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy holds at No. 5.
