Kanye West Now Has More Top 40 Hits Than Michael Jackson

Trending Now

West is now one hit away from meeting Marvin Gaye's 41 mark and is within five hits of surpassing Chris Brown (42) and James Brown (44) to meet Jay Z at 45 Top 40 hits. He'd need six more hits to become one of the top five all-time Top 40 hit makers. As it stands, Elvis Presley leads the field with 80 all-time Top 40 hits and is followed by Lil Wayne (69), Elton John (57), Drake (53), and Stevie Wonder (46).

Back in April, West passed The Beatles and Aretha Franklin to tie Ray Charles for the eighth most Top 100 hits by an artist, with 75.
