Happy Kanye week! As the MC releases his eighth solo album on Friday (June 1), it seems fitting to look back at his biggest songs on the Billboard Hot 100 (as both a lead and featured artist).

Dating back to his Hot 100 debut, "Through The Wire" in 2003, Kanye West has sent 83 tracks to the ranking—the eighth most among soloists in the chart's 59-year history. Drake holds the record among solo artists with 163, followed by Lil Wayne (137), Elvis Presley (108), JAY-Z (97), James Brown (91), Chris Brown (90) and Nicki Minaj (88).

Of those 83 tracks, four have hit No. 1, 15 have reached the top 10 and 41 have made it to the top 40. Needless to say, he's done pretty well for himself.

Of his eight studio albums (including Watch The Throne, with JAY-Z), West has debuted seven atop the Billboard 200, all consecutively since 2005. His debut set The College Dropout debuted and peaked at No. 2. His latest album is sure to make a splash on the June 16-dated Billboard 200.

In anticipation of Yeezy's latest album release, let's take a look at his top 20 biggest hits on the Billboard Hot 100:
