Kanye West Ties Eminem With 9th Consecutive #1 Album for “Jesus is King”

Kanye West’s new album <i>Jesus is King</i> has hit #1 on the <i>Billboard</i> charts–his ninth consecutive album to debut in the top spot. The gospel-inspired LP, which was finally released October 25 after a few false starts, ties Eminem for the most consecutive #1’s on the <i>Billboard</i> 200. The album also delivered West his biggest streaming week ever, at 196.9 million on-demand streams. The album also had the second-best week for an R&B/hip-hop album in 2019, following only Post Malone’s <i>Hollywood’s Bleeding</i>.
