Final Numbers Are In: Kanye West Makes History As ‘Jesus Is King’ Reigns on Billboard 200

Published: Sunday 3rd Nov 2019 by Rashad

 

Kanye West has patient fans, that’s for sure.

Despite missing the initially announced release date (and later the originally announced time) for his latest effort, ‘Jesus is King,’ the highly anticipated project was finally unveiled mid-day October 25 courtesy of his G.O.O.D. Music imprint.

Now, as its inaugural sales tracking week has ended, it can officially be declared ‘King’ will reign over the Billboard 200.

Details inside:


Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’

First Week Sales (SPS): 264,000

Pure Sales: 112,000

Entering chart battle without a leading single to precede it did little to dissuade the rapper’s longtime fans from snatching up the set once it hit shelves.  In fact, the LP’s massive consumption came with quite a few history making feats.

According to Billboard:

“The set marks his record-tying ninth straight album to debut at No. 1; the entirety of his charting efforts from 2005 through 2019 have opened in the top slot. West ties Eminem for the most consecutive No. 1 debuts.

West and Eminem are also now tied for the most consecutive No. 1s on the Billboard 200 [debut or otherwise].”

*****

 

As if that’s not enough, ‘Jesus’ also marks a personal milestone for Yeezy as it launched with 196.9 million on-demand audio streams for its tracks, making it the biggest streaming week of his career.

Congratulations are due to West and team!

    How many copies did tank sell. Sucking dìck doesnt sell albums. Idiot. He annoys me, using the LGBT to promote ur trash album.

    • Nicky November 3, 2019

      They cancelled Hillary Clinton! 😂

      • nate November 4, 2019

        Right! They blame the Russians for why Hillary didnt get elected, but Black Twitter was on the ass way before she ran for office. There is weight in black twitter, but black people did not cancel Kanye.. We clowned him, but didn’t cancel him.

    Jay z never wanted to sign kanye to begin with musically kanye n Jay z r not in the same class!!!

    Jayz n beyonce album flopped

    They r not true creatives
    True creatives r usually a bit crzy thats normal for them im happy he is doing up jesus not like he is rapping anything negative and the trump endorsement would have helped with that demographic

    Black people dont have the power to cancel anyone despite what the crazy women on Twitter think they do !!! Lol

    In fact theres an argument that black people likinig u is bad for business

  7. And I … Oop! November 3, 2019

    The Kartrashians and their fan base bought this. 💅

  8. Bravo!! November 4, 2019

    Thank you for introducing me to ‘Mic Lowry’ but to Delleile Ankrah of the group. We need him in America to help push R&b back to the front of black music

  9. Sweetnothings78 November 4, 2019

    Still laughing at certain cultures saying he’s cancelled. And he’s not. Far from it.
    Everyone needs to chill with the race card. It’s so boring now. Move on.

  12. A&R November 4, 2019

    God is real. Now let’s hope aye continues to stabilize mentally 🙏🏽

  13. High Price November 4, 2019

    I’m probably one of the very few people who didn’t even stream the album. And I can honestly say I don’t have the desire to do so. Good luck to him in the future.
