Last week saw Kanye West topping the Billboard 200 chart with 208,000 units sold for his new album, Ye. Kanye West also tied Eminem and The Beatles for the most consecutive #1 albums on the chart. However, this week Ye holds the #5 spot while his collab album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, debuts at #2.
Ye managed to collect 74,000 units in its second week. That’s a 65% sales drop. Kanye’s album now marks the second biggest drop of 2018, with J. Cole’s chart-topping KOD slipping 73% in May. However, KOD still managed to total 105,000 units in week two.
Over on the Hot 100 chart, Kanye’s “Yikes” fell from the #8 spot to #40 in the following week. Additionally, “Ghost Town” went from #16 to #60 and “Wouldn’t Leave” went from #24 to #92.
