In 2003, West collaborated with rapper Twista and singer Jamie Foxx on the song "Slow Jamz", which became West's first single to top the US Billboard Hot 100.[4] West's debut album, The College Dropout, was released in February 2004. The album peaked at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart and was certified double-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[5][6] It spawned four singles, including the Hot 100 top ten single "All Falls Down" and the Grammy Award-winner "Jesus Walks". West then released his second studio album Late Registration in August 2005. It peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, with first week sales of 860,000 copies.[7] Late Registration produced five singles, including the international hits "Touch the Sky", "Heard 'Em Say" and "Gold Digger"; the latter single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.[4] The critically acclaimed album has sold over three million copies and has attained five multi-platinum certifications, including a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA.[6][8]

The album peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, continuing a streak of number-one albums for West.[5] Four singles were released from the album, all of which reached the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100: "Power", "Monster", "Runaway" and "All of the Lights".[4]

In 2011, West collaborated with American recording artist Katy Perry on a remix of her song "E.T." which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100, marking West's fourth number-one single on the chart.[4] Watch the Throne, a collaboration with Jay-Z, was released as West's sixth studio album in August 2011. Peaking at number one on the Billboard 200,[5] Watch the Throne produced seven singles, including the Billboard Hot 100 top 25 singles "H•A•M", "Otis" and "Niggas in Paris".[4] West's seventh studio album Yeezus was released in June 2013 and debuted at number one in the United States, with first-week sales of 327,000 copies.[11]
