Maybe it was merely driven by curiosity, maybe it’s a sign of the times, or maybe it’s because it’s a deeply-personal, sweet, savage, scattered, seven-track album, but Kanye’s entire Ye record charted in the Top 50 on the weekend.

While we have grumbled about this symptom of streaming in the past, seven songs seems less like a complete farce, and more representative of Kanye’s popularity/divisiveness.

His placements are as such:

12. All Mine

18. Yikes

22. Ghost Town

33.Wouldn’t Leave

40. Violent Crimes

41. I Thought About Killing You

46. No Mistakes

Surprisingly, the lower-charting and therefore the least popular, is the most like his older chipmunk soul stuff. Maybe people don’t miss the old Kanye, after all.

Believe it or not…
