Kanye West becomes the first artist to go no.1 on the Billboard charts from streaming...
This week Kanye West's new album The Life of Pablo bows at no.1 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 90,000 album equivalents.
The Life of Pablo will be the first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 where more than half of its units were generated by streaming equivalent albums.
The previous high-water mark for streams at No. 1 was notched just three weeks ago, on the April 2-dated chart, when Rihanna’s Anti returned to No. 1, with 31.25 percent of its total units (54,000) derived from streams.
