Kanye ties number one streak with new album

Kids See Ghosts

Kanye West was in a "sunken" place and addicted to opioids past year but he has successfully turned that around to release two back to back albums.

The aftermath? Yet another Billboard #1 hit.

According to first-week sales projections reported by HitsDailyDouble, Kids See Ghosts is expected to move between 100,000 and 110,000 album equivalent units-55,000 to 60,000 of which will be from traditional sales. Ye also had the seventh largest debut streaming week ever, with 180.1 million on-demand audio streams. This is historically significant for Kanye in a variety of ways: His eight No. 1 albums in a row ties a record held by The Beatles (for albums released between 1965 to 1968) and Eminem (an active streak since 2000).

West has reached number one with all of his studio albums except his debut, 2004's "The College Dropout", and also topped the chart with a collaborative album with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne", from 2011.

Despite criticism of his latest work as half-baked in comparison to his earlier classics, it seems likely Kanye will only continue to rack up those #1s in the future: very rarely does a generational talent piss off and enamour so many people all at once.
