Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo was made available for download on both Tidal and Kanye’s website on April 1 and according to Billboard the album will “debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated April 23, with over 90,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 7.” The relevance? This would make The Life of Pablo the first No. 1 album where more than half of its album units were “generated by streaming equivalent albums.” Love him or hate him, K.W. sells.
