Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ Is Available for Streaming
After a couple of delays, Kanye West has finally released his new project, The Life of Pablo. The rapper-producer’s seventh album is exclusively streaming through Tidal and will be sold exclusively through West’s official website for one full week before hitting digital stores.
The 18-track collection boasts a star-studded list of guest appearances including Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Young Thug, Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Ty Dolla $ign, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone and newly signed G.O.O.D. Music artist Desiigner. West also enlists a slew of producers to help with production including Swizz Beatz, Mike Dean, Boi-1Da, Havoc, Rick Rubin, Southside and many more.
Previously released songs like "Real Friends," "Wolves," "30 Hours," "No More Parties in LA" and "Facts" are on the album as well. Standout tracks include "Father Stretch My Hands" the gloomy-sounding "Famous," the anthemic "Waves" and the club-friendly banger "Fade."
"Let's dance in the streets. I am consumed by my purpose to help the world," tweeted Kanye after he dropped the album. "I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart."
Let us all pray that Yeezy can overcome his financial struggle. Sheesh!
Reactions to TLOP have been mixed with some fans liking the album while other find it underwhelming. One fan tweeted, "4 tracks into #TLOP and I have already signed up to be a priest for the church of Yeezyianity," while another commented, "It's an ok album. I can bump it but no where near a classic. #TLOP."
TLOP was released after West performed "Highlights” (with Young Thug, The-Dream, Kelly Price and El DeBarge) and “Ultra Beam Lights” (with Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin, The-Dream, Price and gospel choir) on Saturday Night Live.
