Kanye West‘s Life of Pablo just became the first streaming-only album to ever go platinum and gain RIAA certification!


The rapper’s most recent studio album has been streamed over 3 billion times since its release in Feb. 2016, and it keeps racking ’em up! It also was the first streaming-only album to hit the top of the Billboard Hot 200 chart.

West is truly a trendsetter when it comes to music, and Life of Pablo is a stunning example of that. By implementing exquisite samples and risk-taking lyrics, the album transcends genres and provides more than just rap songs — but more like social commentary for our generation. Yeezy seems to get inspiration from everywhere, and even teamed up with EDM’s favorite feline Cashmere Cat¬†for one of the best songs on the album, “Wolves.”

If you haven’t listened to this masterpiece yet, this is your chance to hear a little slice of music history…
