Kanye West's 'The Life of Pablo' charts at No. 1 on Billboard 200

Kanye Wests’ 7th consecutive album The Life of Pablo has charted at No.1 album on the Billboard 200 charts! This album is the first album to achieve this spot with the majority of its sales consisting from streaming & not only album sales. This album earned 94,000 album units and of that 28,000 where album sales whilst the rest were from streaming.


On the initial release of The Life of Pablo, the album was exclusive to Tidal streamers only, however on the 1st April it The Life Of Pablo became available on Apple Music & Spotify. Prior to the release on other streaming sites, the sales and streams via Tidal were not reported to Neilsen Music; the data force behind the Billboard 200 chart, making it difficult to measure and allowing it not to chart.


West expresses his feelings via Twitter by thanking his fans for making it to No.1 and also mentions wind of a tour leading from the album. Definitely one to look out for!
