Rap superstar Kanye West earned his eighth consecutive number one album on the Billboard 200 chart with his latest best-selling effort “Ye,” after he openly embraced President Donald Trump.
According to Billboard, West “ties Eminem for the second-most No. 1 albums among hip-hop acts in the history of the chart.”
“Only JAY-Z is ahead of them, as he owns 14 chart-toppers,” Billboard explained, adding that, “Among all acts, The Beatles have the most No. 1s, with 19.”
The fashion mogul took to Twitter on Monday to celebrate his latest history-making musical achievement with his fans and followers.
