“Yikes” is also his 16th top 10 single. This feat has him tied with Nicki Minaj for the sixth most Hot 100 top 10s among rappers. 

As a whole, Ye has also scored some more impressive feats. Even though it came in at only seven tracks, Ye moved over 200,000 units in its first week. (Plus, it meant the entire album occupied the first seven spots on Apple Music and Spotify’s charts immediately after the album’s release.) These numbers helped Kanye earn his eighth straight No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Kanye is now tied with Eminem and The Beatles for the most consecutive-chart toppers. In case you need some perspective, that means all of Kanye’s albums after 2004’s The College Dropout have reached No. 1.
