Kanye West’s latest album, Jesus Is King, has debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 charts. This feat ties West with Eminem, who now both hold the record of relesing nine straight albums to debut at no. 1.
Billboard reports that Jesus Is King had 264,000 equivalent units moved, with 109,000 of that number being actual physical copies bought with the rest of the numbers tallied up via streaming. Jesus Is King was streamed just under 197 million times by the end of October 31 when the numbers were officially gathered.
Jay-Z currently holds the records of most no. 1 first-week album sales position but did not achieve the feat consecutively as West and Eminem have.
