KW"Gone", a song from Kayne West's 2005 sophomore album "Late Registration" debuts in Billboard's Top 100 songs at #18 thanks to viral video by writer and comedian Marina Shifton. The video shows her dancing around an empty office at 4:30, as subtitles offer the reasons that she's quiting her job at the video creators Next Media Animation.  Sifrin's resignation video has 15.5 million views and a company produced answer video using the same song has clocked 4 million views.  Watch them both:

  1. Just as I always say. It’s never to late or early to release music… In this age. You just have to do it. Being creative is a key factor to success and not subscribing to ideas of idiots who don’t know what they;re taking about with regard to how music works. Ain’t nothing like a broke expert.
