In addition, reports state that it was the fifth-largest week for an album this year and the seventh-largest streaming debut week ever, equating to 180.1 million on-demand audio streams.

Furthermore, Yeezy could make it a record-breaking nine straight wins, should he and Kid Cudi‘s joint album ‘Kids See Ghosts‘ follow suit.

Additionally, should the album fail to meet that feat, it could also wreck Kanye’s streak. We’ll see!
