Kanye West Tops British Charts With ‘Yeezus’ / J.Cole’s ‘Born Sinner’ Hits #2

Published: Sunday 23rd Jun 2013 by David

Before they enjoy similar success in their domestic market this week, Kanye West & J.Cole have found themselves dominating the British charts this week, soaring to the top with their respective albums!

Chart check below…

Thanks to an extensive promo campaign that saw him bypass radio and take the album straight to the masses, Kanye West has topped the Official UK Album chart this week, watching the hype for the album in the US spill overseas via the internet to take him there.

Marking his second #1 in the nation following 2007’s ‘Graduation‘, the album hit #1 on both the overall and Urban chart, dethroning Rihanna‘s ever thriving ‘Unapologetic’ from #1 on the latter, while blocking J.Cole‘s ‘Born Sinner‘ from occupying, forcing that masterpiece to #2.

On the overall tally (where all genres can be found), ‘Sinner’ sits at #7, joining West in watching the US momentum for his project catch the ears (and wallets) of British consumers.

Meanwhile, Jason Derulo‘s ‘The Other Side’ debuts at #2- stopped from chart supremacy by Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’, while Kelly Rowland‘s new LP ‘Talk A Good Game‘ peaks at #7 on Urban as Adele‘s ‘21‘ rises on the overall chart- rising to #65 after spending last week at #71.

Well done to all!

    • Angela Wesley June 23, 2013

      Hello! Finally some intelligent people on this board.
      The whole album is demonic to me . I only listen
      to one of his song and turn it off. Kelly Rowland
      and J Cole albums were much better. He is
      only getting publicity because he is dating
      Kim , and J- Z aye singed him to Roc Nation.

      • ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) June 23, 2013

        Exactly @Angela, I don’t even respond to the lost causes anymore. Devil aka Kanye got em…

  8. Lover Boy June 23, 2013

    • the best dancer June 24, 2013

      Dont blame Sam b.c Kelly’s team is not doing their job. Sam aint on her payroll

      Unfortunaely, my girl CiCI will flop to . Her team is HORRBLE.

    • shisha June 23, 2013

      At least she sits at #7 on r and b charts! That’s better than nothing! The UK just isnt feeling R and B just like the US!

  17. rih rox June 23, 2013

    Anyone can overshadow Kelly Rowland sad but true

    • shisha June 23, 2013

      Yeah any freaken rap artist! R AND B JUST CANT WIN IN GENERAL US OR OVERSEAS!

      • Super Cisus June 23, 2013

        Kelly can’t win

  20. Aloys234 June 23, 2013

    I got all three albums, so far listened iv listened to Kelly Rowlands, and that is on point, as u can that was a flawless performance, and the best is yet to come.. KElly, KAnye and J cole all deserve ratings (not so much j cole, he’s just standard nothing authentic about his style.) eat s*** haters!

  21. truthteller June 23, 2013

    Lmao @ Samantha.
    Kelly is #7 on the UK urban chart?
    Does that mean that she missed the top100 all together on the regular chart?

    Congrats to king yeezus.
    No single
    No video
    Only 1 performance in the whole world
    And still debuts #1.

    Ur fav can never…. lol

    • shisha June 23, 2013

      At least she sits at #7 on r and b charts! That’s better than nothing! The UK just isnt feeling R and B just like the US!

      Good question..I see her nowhere on the regular chart!

  22. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 23, 2013

    Dang…why cant she sell?!

  23. #Hive June 23, 2013

    According to Kelly stans they claim Kelly has a strong fan base in the UK hmmm looks like that’s LIE.

  24. Where’s the real fans June 23, 2013

    That’s cause these so called fans didn’t get her album.. I never really liked kelly.. But my friend told me that the album was good.. So I went and got the album and it’s truly is here best work to date.. It should be the best r&b album of the year.. I can’t get any of the songs out of my head.. Out of 17 song I would say I don’t like 1… You can play the whole album with skipping songs… Kelly fans is wack.. Real fans woulda got 2 or 3 copy’s and gave to friends and family’s like I did.

  25. Rosie June 23, 2013

    Yess Yeezus, no single, no cover, no airplay, no promo except for SNL.
    J. Cold stans saying this is the album of the year. If so why is every hip hop site + the general public siding with Kanye? Born Sinner has a lower Metacritic score than Mac f****** Miller, explain that?
    LOL @ Kelly.

  26. CANDI June 23, 2013

    Sam is a bitter queen because his beloved Kelly debuted at #80 on the main chart. He deleted my comment. What a soft little b**** you are! LOL!!!!

  27. Super Cisus June 23, 2013

    Truth is: Kelly is a low budget shadow and nobody is here for her.

  28. Belle June 24, 2013

    I purchased both Kanyes and J coles album. Have to say Born sinner was a A LOT better. Well done to them both
