CHART SPOTLIGHT. WelcheMusic just got a sneak peak of the still unfinished video of Kanye West’s latest single “Monster” via our friends at Just Jared. The track is available on West’s latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. It features Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Justin Vernon from the indie folk group Bon Iver.
The track was issued as the third single off the set and was available as a digital download as of Oct. 23. To date, the “Monster” has peaked at No.18 on the Billboard Hot 100 – its highest placing so far is No.15 on the Billboard Rap Songs chart.
In Sweden, “Runaway” is the only chart entry off the album to date. It peaked at No.28 after a sole week on the tally. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy reached No.19 in Sweden on its first week of release. The set debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, selling 496,000 copies the first week. “All of the Lights” is scheduled for single release in February 2011.
