The well-known YouTuber turned rapper KSI has done it yet again. Another record by his name!
KSI reached the top of the UK album chart in the second attempt, with his album All Over The Place.
His 16-track album has been streamed a total of 20.9 million times since he released it last week, the Official Charts Company has confirmed.
‘Your Boy Did It’
“Your boy did it!” he said talking to an entertainment tabloid. “I finally got it, the number one album – MAD!”
The 28-year-old Youtuber-Boxer-Rapper has knocked out Bono’s son’s Inhaler from the top rank, while Olivia Rodrigo sits in second place with Sour.
“I never thought I’d ever receive one of these,” commented KSI – whose real name is Olajide Olatunji.
“I have no right – I’m a YouTuber!”
The album has featured plenty of the top 10 most popular songs, including Holiday, Don’t Play, Really Love, and Patience.
It also includes high-profile guest appearances for other stars including Future, 21 Savage, Yungblud, Anne-Marie and Craig David.
Watford YouTuber and boxer has been active in rap and hip-hop off late. KSI has made a name for himself for more than a decade doing various different things.
KSI’s Thrilling Career
Initially KSI started off and built a massive following by playing Fifa’s video games and commentating on the gameplay. He now has over 23 million subscribers on his channel, and will play for thousands of fans on the big stage at Reading and Leeds events next month.
Speaking to Newsbeat last month, he said he had big plans for his new record, The Online Takeover.
“I want to move like Lil Wayne with Nicki Minaj, Tyga and Drake” he told Sam Gruet.
