Really hot thumbnail for this article post!

After shaking up the music industry with the modernly transparent release of his ever-changing Life Of Pablo, rap superstar Kanye West will see 2016 as a year not just where he caused his usual controversy, but one in which he broke records.

As Kanye and Schoolboy Q’s “That Part” jumped to number 40 today on that very chart, Kanye surpassed the King of Pop with his number of Top 40 appearances.
