Kanye West's Yeezus album makes the history books

Kanye West's new album Yeezus made history this week but not in a good way...at least not in a way Kanye would have liked! :-)

The album holds the crown for the fourth biggest drop in second week sales for a #1 debut album since Sound Scan started keeping track in 1991.

Kanye released the new album with no pre-sales, no singles and no videos. And even though it debuted at No.1 with 327,000 in sales, it quickly slipped to No.3 the following week, falling by 80%. Continue...

    There is no champion for life. At least, it was once number one.

    The Rise and Fall of KANYE,
    BTW Heard KIM Cheated of KANYE on TMZ.

    KANYE CAUGHT KIM CHEATING ON HIM

    Less than a month that the Fashionista and American celebrity Kim Kardashian gave birth to a beautiful baby,she was caught cheating on her boyfriend,the American top rapper.
    News getting to FNN claims that Kanye’s house was on fire in the early hours of today after he got back from the studio and caught kim cheating on him in his matrimonial bed. Kanye was said to be furious that he asked Kim to leave his house and drop the baby that’s apparently still breast-feeding and in need of her mother’s warmth.
    According to one of Kanye’s body-guards,Kanye west caught Kim Kardashian cheating on him with a huge dildo and this made the jealous rapper angry saying “Yo b****,f**k you! How can your horny ass cheat on me with a huge dildo,Is you saying my motherf**king D*** is not big enough and small for you? Why not use a tiny dildo? “
    Kanye west’s annoyance is understandable as this occurrence would make any man feel conscious about the size and effectiveness of his manhood.
    We shall keep you posted of new development on the situation.

    I'm not surprised, at all. I don't think Ye too would be. D album is certainly not for iTunes, and he did say a few weeks before the release that he wouldn't care how many copies he sold. So....

    No pre-sales, no singles, no videos...what you expect ho....That's arrogant. How do you expect to sell a product without marketing? Even the most established brand products still invest heavily in their products to remain consistent/relevant/dominant in their industry. Guess yeezy really don't give a sh*t!

    I doubt if this down plunge in sales is gon' bother Mr West that much,all dude wanted was to debut at No.1 with nothing lower than 200,000units sold which he did with ease. Don't forget,he even outsold artistes like J.Cole and Mac Miller whose albums drooped same day as his and had singles on the radio and TV. And before anyone of you ignorant shit heads start blaming this on the album title,I suggest you go check out what he meant by 'Yeezus'. But of all the rap albums that have dropped this summer(I say rap albums cos u lot don't listen to Indie Rock),I'm in love with #MagnaCartaHolyGrail the most....somewhere in America,we got Miley Cyrus twerking(can't get that line outta me head)Hahaha

    Best album of the year...its too much for you non intelligent, not music idiots. think outside the box for once in your life. this album is different. better than those garbage rap songs that all sound the same. kanye will always bring something new to the game always. he is on the top. shout out to Travis Scott.
