Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Kanye West A Top Contender For Next Week’s #1 Spot

Album On Pace To Make History-Making Dash To The Top


Much like his ‘FourFiveSeconds’ co-star Rihanna, the campaign surrounding Kanye West‘s latest opus, ‘The Life Of Pablo,’ has been a rollercoaster to say the least.

Despite being greeted by critical acclaim from music industry insiders to fans alike, the album’s sales have been…umm…interesting considering it’s only been available for stream via Tidal and for purchase via his own official web site.

Well, that was, until last week.

Now with spins being earned on Spotify, Apple Music, and more, West may very well be ready to see that “rollercoaster” ride him right to the top of the Billboard 200.  Challenging next week’s top contenders for the spot – Zayn Malik, Jhene Aiko/Big Sean, and Rih, ‘Pablo’ is set to see new life breathed into it.  The feat, if accomplished, will be accompanied by some history-making news:

Kanye West Slams Taylor Swift (Again) In Leaked Backstage ‘SNL’ Audio


The arguable undoing of Kanye West continues to play out in dramatic fashion.

Twitter has been the rapper’s platform of choice to reel off his inner-most thoughts – most of which read worryingly incoherent or flat out offensive.

And while some have been wondering whether it’s all an elaborate rouse to promote new album ‘The Life of Pablo,’ leaked audio from backstage at Saturday Night Live suggests the Hip-Hop titan is just as intense away from the keyboard.
