This week Kanye West is back with his first proper Christian album gospel Jesus Is King claiming the highest spot without any other title which put up much of a fight storms the chart on top of the Billboard 200. When it comes to more than one record on the all-genre albums ranking, the rapper has tied another hip-hop superstar by landing another leader.
West has had one of a collaborative set (Kids See Ghosts which was released under the moniker Kids See Ghosts with Kid Cudi) and his solo albums (his debut). He fail to conquer the Billboard 200, but the American people can’t help but consume it immediately if he shares a full-length as Kanye West for well over a decade.
While Eminem has landed additional rulers as a part of more than one group West’s entire collection of No. 1s and sometimes the duo is under his own name, though the album is officially credited to West and Jay was referred to as The Throne (of which one was a collaborative project with Jay-Z). He made it to No. 1 on the Billboard with both D12 and Bad Vs. Evil and he also scored nine leaders as Eminem.
Both West and Eminem have always kicked off a new era at No. 1. They two have started their last nine full-lengths atop the list with nine apiece, without breaking their streak. It’s not difficult to understand that the biggest names sometimes don’t make it to the top with new releases and the two superstar musicians claim this title as even.They miss the throne by just one rung saw their debut albums that turned them into household names. West’s ninth consecutive album to debut Jesus Is King which is currently the record for the most such immediate wins is at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. In a funny coincidence, Eminem’s record is also tied by West for the most consecutive chart-toppers of any kind, debut or not in addition to the most consecutive No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200
