Kanye West Breaks Michael Jackson's Record of Most Top 40 Hits
Kanye West once again makes history as he joins the Top 10 Most top 40 Hits. Michael Jackson and Frankie Valli both had 39 Top 40 hits respectively. West broke through that number when helping School Boy Q get a Top 40 Hit on his new song "That Part" where Kanye West was featured on the track. That Part was at number 42 until this weeks billboard chart release, where it became the top 40'th record in the country.
Kanye West is now just one song away from tying Marvin Gaye (41 Top 40 Hits). Chris Brown has 42, whereas James Brown brought in 44 and Jay-Z reaching 45 Top 40 hit records. Elvis Presley is leading everyone with 80 Top 40 Hits and is followed by Lil Wayne with 69, Elton John with 57, Drake with 53 and Stevie Wonder with 46. So Kanye just needs to beat 6 more people to become part of the Top 5 Top 40 Hits club.
