Kanye West has stormed back to the top of the U.S. album charts with his new release Yeezus.

The new dad has debuted his latest project at number one with 327,000 first-week sales.

It's West's sixth consecutive album to land at the top of the Billboard 200, but Yeezus is also the rapper's lowest-selling debut. His last solo record, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, topped the charts in 2010 with 496,000 first-week sales.

Fellow rap star J. Cole is also celebrating after debuting Born Sinner at two, while MAC Miller enters the new countdown at three with Movies With the Sound Off.

Rounding out the top five is Kelly Rowland's new release Talk a Good Game at four and Black Sabbath's 13, which debuted at number one last week (19Jun13).

Meanwhile, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines scores a third week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, holding off Daft Punk's Get Lucky at two and Imagine Dragons' Radioactive at three.
