Kanye West Ties The Longest Streak Of No. 1 Albums With 'Ye'

The G.O.O.D. Music leader joins Eminem and The Beatles.

(AllHipHop News)Ye, the new album by Kanye West, opens atop the Billboard 200 chart. The set earned 208,000 first-week equivalent album units.

This gives West his eighth consecutive #1 LP. He is now tied with Eminem and The Beatles as the only acts to have eight straight Number Ones. Additionally, West and Em are the only artists to have eight #1 debuts.

Kanye is also in a tie with Eminem for the second-most #1 by a Hip Hop artist. Jay-Z holds that overall record with 14 chart toppers.

Ye's first studio album The College Dropout is his only album not to reach #1. The Chicago native's streak may end next week, because his joint effort with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, is predicted to fall behind Dave Matthews Band for the #1 spot.
