All 16 Songs on Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign’s ‘Vultures 1’ Debut on Hot 100

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign have a monumental week on Billboard’s charts (dated Feb. 24), thanks to the pair’s new collaborative album, Vultures 1.

The set by the pair, billed collaboratively as ¥$: Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 148,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in its opening week (Feb. 9-15, following its Feb. 10 release), according to Luminate. Ye earns his 11th No. 1 album — as he passes Eminem for the third-most among rappers, after Jay-Z (14) and Drake (13) — and Ty Dolla $ign scores his first.

Meanwhile, all 16 songs on the album — Ye’s first following his string of hate speech and antisemitic remarks, which resulted in companies including Adidas and Def Jam Recordings distancing themselves from him — debut on the Billboard Hot 100, led by “Carnival” at No. 3. Ye notches his 21st top 10 hit, and Ty Dolla $ign his third, and first in a lead role.

Here’s a look at every song, all debuts, by Ye and Ty Dolla $ign on the latest Hot 100.

With 16 debuts on the latest Hot 100, Ye ups his total to 157 career entries. He boasts the sixth-most in the chart’s 65-year history, after Drake (328), Taylor Swift (232), the Glee Cast (207), Lil Wayne (186) and Future (168). Ty Dolla $ign pushes his sum to 46 entries.

Thanks to their featured appearances, North West and Bump J both earn their first career Hot 100 hits. At just 10 years old, North West, the eldest child of Ye and Kim Kardashian (who divorced in 2022), is now one of the youngest acts ever to reach the chart. Among other precocious charted talents, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, hit the Hot 100 at just 7 years old in 2019, thanks to her featured turn on Beyoncé, Saint Jhn and Wizkid’s “Brown Skin Girl.” She made her overall chart debut just after making her debut in the world, as her coos are heard on Jay-Z’s “Glory,” featuring B.I.C.. The song hit Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in 2012, making her the youngest billed artist ever on any Billboard chart.

Stevie Wonder is the youngest credited artist to hit No. 1 on the Hot 100, as he was 13 when “Fingertips (Part II)” led in 1963. Overall, Jordy is the youngest billed artist to have appeared on the chart, at just over 5 years old with “Dur Dur D’être Bébé (It’s Tough To Be a Baby)” in 1993.

Also notable is the debut of “Good (Don’t Die).” The song was removed from Spotify after less than four days on the streaming service, as it includes an uncleared interpolation of Donna Summer’s 1977 top 10 Hot 100 hit “I Feel Love.” The song has since been removed from all other streaming services and for purchase. Hours after the release of Vultures 1, Summer’s estate claimed “copyright infringement” and disapproved of the use of the alleged sample. “Kanye West … asked permission to use Donna Summer’s song I Feel Love, he was denied … he changed the words, had someone re sing it or used AI but it’s I Feel Love … copyright infringement!!!,” the estate posted in an Instagram Story on the official Donna Summer account Feb. 10.

That isn’t the only sampling issue regarding the album. Ozzy Osbourne called out Ye and labeled him an antisemite after an earlier version of “Carnival” included a live performance of Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.” Plus, R&B artist Dijon posted to Instagram Stories Feb. 9, a day before the album’s release, suggesting that he was unaware that his song “Good Luck” was being sampled on the track “Stars.”
