Kanya West Breaking Gospel Charts

Kanya West Breaking Gospel Charts

Kanye West’s first faith-based album, Jesus Is King, has made history on Billboard‘s Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs charts.

As previously reported, the set opens at No. 1 on both the Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums tallies (dated Nov. 9) with 264,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week (ending Oct. 31), according to Nielsen Music.

It concurrently tops the all-genre Billboard 200, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts and, along with its Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Albums reigns, arrives as the first set ever to rule all five rankings.

West adds another unprecedented achievement thanks to the set’s songs individually, as he becomes the first artist to monopolize the entire top 10 on both Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs. The charts, which launched in 2003 and 2005, respectively, are fueled by streaming, airplay and sales data.

On Hot Gospel Songs, the hip-hop superstar actually controls the top 11, thanks to every song from the album.
