Kanye-West - Jesus-Is-King

Kanye West has chalked up a new record as the first artist to dominate the entire Top 10 on two Billboard Christian songs charts.

Tracks from West’s new album, ‘Jesus Is King’, currently hold all Top 10 song spots in Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs charts.

Meanwhile, the album itself concurrently crowns the all-genre Billboard 200Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts and – along with taking the top spots on Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums – is the first to ever rule all five rankings.


Specifically, on Hot Gospel Songs, Ye’s ‘Jesus Is King’ tracks occupy the top 11 songs (the total number on the album).

Elsewhere, West has equaled Eminem’s record for having the most consecutive Number One albums in the US.


‘Jesus Is King’ debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 albums chart last month, making it his ninth consecutive Number One album. Eminem’s run stretches from his release of ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ in 2000 to last year’s surprise release, ‘Kamikaze’.

Meanwhile, NME’s Jordan Bassett praised Ye’s ninth studio album. In a four-star review, he wrote that “an iconoclast sounds peaceful and fulfilled on this jubilant gospel collection”.
