Kanye West's "The Life Of Pablo" Makes History With Platinum Milestone

GOOD / Def Jam

Kanye West‘s seventh solo album, The Life of Pablo, was one of the Chicago superstar’s more ambitious outings given the project’s rollout method and the various tweaks made to it since its initial release. West can now boast that the project is officially certified platinum — the first streaming-only album to earn that distinction.

TLOP was released as a TIDAL exclusive in February 2016 and became a bit of a work in progress for West after he continued to edit the final tracklist and mixes of the songs. The album was made available to TIDAL’s streaming competitors on April 1 of the same year, despite West’s previous insistence that it would stay exclusive.

Tuesday’s announcement that the RIAA certified the record platinum comes with the news that the album has been streamed more than 3 billion times across all platforms, according to a Def Jam press release.

The album was also the first streaming-only project to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Rumored Kendrick Lamar Tracklist Leaked Online

Kendrick Lamar shook up the Hip Hop world with his latest track “The Heart Part 4” coming as a welcome surprise as the first quarter nears a close next month. Teasing what appeared to be a release date for his upcoming fourth studio album in the song, rumors about the new project increased significantly after the publishing of an alleged tracklist online.

An anonymous Pastebin user posted what looked to be an official document showing a detailed tracklisting for the album. The potential album lists a bevy of features and collaborators, which include the likes of Kanye West, Anna Wise, Alchemist, DJ Dahi, longtime collaborator Sounwave and several others.

The line that piqued the interest of Lamar fans was as follows: “You know what time it is, ante up, this is in forever/Y’all got ’til April the 7th to get y’all shit together.”

A quick scan of Top Dawg and Punch of TDE’s Twitter timelines doesn’t reveal any clues about the potential April 7 release of an album but it wouldn’t be the first surprise release from the West Coast label as last year’s untitled unmastered. was released without the usual media blitz.

And of course, people are still wondering if KDot took shots at Drake or Big Sean on “The Heart Part 4.”
