It only took Kanye one day and one post.

By Hayden Wright

Kanye West had barely spent one day on Instagram when his account crossed the 1 million follower milestone. With just one post to his credit, that’s a rapid ascent that should give everybody pause. Imagine: If Kanye can sustain this momentum for 99 more days, he’ll pass Selena Gomez as the most-followed Instagram user by the end of 2016.

By the numbers, Kanye has a long way to climb to catch up with his pop contemporaries. His wife Kim Kardashian holds court with nearly 83 million followers on the photo-sharing network, while sparring partner Taylor Swift sits pretty with 91 million. The reigning King of Instagram Justin Bieber has 77.8 million Beliebers as his captive audience for shirtless pics, dog photos and the occasional singalong video.

West’s auspicious debut is bound to gather more attention as he grows his content library, but for now, just 24 hours¬†into his presence on the site, he’s got a lot to celebrate. Congrats on 1 million followers, Kanye! We’re wishing you tens (nay, hundreds) of millions more!

Here’s Yeezy’s first photo, which will probably end up in a museum someday:
