Chart Check [Hot 100]: Kanye West’s Career Total Rises To 107 Entries Thanks To ‘Jesus Is King’

Published: Wednesday 6th Nov 2019 by Rashad

This is a great week to be Kanye West.

Despite pissing fans off after multiple delays of his long-awaited new album, ‘Jesus Is King,‘ the Grammy-winner quickly won them over once the set was finally unveiled on October 25.  Opening to critical acclaim from industry leaders and fan alike, the project bowed at #1 on the refreshed Billboard 200 (as we reported here) to the impressive sum of 264,000.

And, while its domination on that tally saw West penciled in history books for claiming his 9th consecutive title to reach the summit, ‘King’ is also reigning above a number of other charts as well – namely the Hot 100.  Managing to place all 11 of its tracks on the hit list, the move not only makes him one of few performers able to claim such feat but also moved him up on the chart’s ‘all-time’ tally.

Report:

Upping his total from 96 Hot 100 visits to 107, West surpasses Nicki Minaj (105), Jay-Z (100) and Chris Brown (96) for fifth-most in the chart’s 61-year history. The Glee cast holds the record, with 207, followed by Drake (205), Lil Wayne (163) and Elvis Presley (109).

Curious to see just where those 11 hits landed?  Look inside:
