PIERS MORGAN: Be mad at Kanye, not girls singing n***as

Twelve years ago, Kanye West had a massive hit with a song called 'Gold Digger'.

Featuring guest vocals by Jamie Foxx, it hit No1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, stayed there for ten weeks, was the second-longest running No1 on that chart for the entire year of 2005, and remains Billboard's sixth-longest running No1 ever.

'Gold Digger' smashed the record for most digital downloads in a week and was also the fastest-selling digital download of all time.

It won the 2006 Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance and was also nominated for Record of the Year.

The song lists at No60 on Billboard's All Time Top100 and has sold over three MILLION copies in the United States alone.

So we're talking about one of the most popular songs of this entire Millennium; one that literally hundreds of millions of people will have heard on the radio.
