Kanye West's Ye beats records held by the Beatles and Eminem

Kanye West's new album "Ye" has surpassed landmark achievements from both the Beatles and Eminem.

It's West's eighth album in succession to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a record only held by both Eminem and the Beatles.

All seven "Ye" tracks have debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40.

Nielsen states that "Ye" has had 180 million streams and sold 85,000 copies, which is the equivalent to 208,000 albums in the US in its first week of release.
