Andre 3000 wasn’t thinking about the charts when he dropped New Blue Son, an album of flute music with nary a bar in it.

But charts still came coming.

The album’s opening song, “I Swear, I Really Wanted to Make a ‘Rap’ Album but This Is Literally the Way the Wind Blew Me This Time” is 90 this week on the hot 100.

At 12 minutes and 20 seconds, it is the longest track in Hot 100 history.

And with that, Three Stacks may never return to rap.
