tl;dr: Kanye West is now officially the third artist in history to have eight consecutive No. 1 albums in terms of sales, the others being Eminem and The Beatles.
Kanye is also the most likely to break this record, considering he is more popular than ever and probably not even close to retiring, whereas The Beatles have obviously been disbanded for several decades (and, ya know, two of its members are dead
), and Eminem has claimed that his most recent album will be his last (he actually said that in lyrics on the album
Thoughts on this? I figured it was worthwhile to make this separate from the general music thread.
It's probably worth mentioning that, on Kanye's new album, he has lyrics explaining that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is particularly interesting to me because I was diagnosed with it as well, years and years ago
Personally, I feel that the new album is a solid 8/10, definitely not his best, but he has yet to make a bad solo album so far imo.
