One of Kanye’s standout hits, Gold Digger, was originally never meant for Kanye. The song was first written at Ludacris’s house in Atlanta for a Shawnna album Kanye was producing, but Shawnna passed on the track. The verse was originally written as though from the female point of view, and had been recorded by Shawnna but was later scrapped. When the track was rejected, Kanye loved it so much that he decided to keep the song and change the lyrics slightly to show the male point of view. The song went to number one in the U.S. almost immediately upon release, and broke the record for the most digital downloads in a week at 80,000. It remains the fastest-selling digital download of all time.
