Kanye West Is Making Music Chart History Without Sales

'Ye is innovating in a different way these days.

Published April 5, 2016

Kanye West is known for doing some pretty innovative stuff. And while his music hasn’t been as game-changing as of late the way he’s releasing it is.

‘Ye finally released his most recent album The Life Of Pablo to streaming services aside from Tidal last week and it’s done even more numbers for him. TLOP is slated to be the first ever album to top the charts (due to streaming) with virtually no physical copy sales.

HITS Daily Double and @ChartNews is reporting that the album is projected to represent 60,000 units sold nearly entirely on TWA and SEA, which will probably put it #1 on the Billboard 200 next week.

Kanye don’t need no CDs!
