    2621419-alicia-keys-617-409Alicia Keys earns her sixth straight No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with “Girl On Fire” this week, tying her for the most consecutive No. 1s among solo artists with DMX, R. Kelly,Kanye West and Luther Vandross. (Keys already had the most straight leaders among women.)

    In the lead among all acts is the Temptations, who strung together an amazing 10 straight No. 1s between 1965 and 1969.
    DMX’s first six albums all hit the top — from 1998’s “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot” through 2006’s “Year of the Dog… Again.” For R. Kelly, his streak ran from 1994’s “12 Play” on to 2003’s “Chocolate Factory.” All six of Kanye West’s releases have topped the list (that includes “Watch the Throne” with Jay-Z), while Vandross’ first six entries hit No. 1 between 1981 and 1988.
