No Beautiful Songs?
Kanye spoke to GQ Magazine back in July about his upcoming album and told them he had built up what he had a called a collection of “beautiful songs.”
"Hey, I'm a great musician. I make these beautiful songs, and they have all this meaning, and nobody can make anything that means this much."
Ye then admitted that he had decided to scrap his original work, in favor of a different sound.
"I got a new song that's so good that the album has to be balanced against it."
It seems that “beautiful” wasn’t up to Yeezy’s standards, which he stated led him rework his new record.
"Before … I had these beautiful songs, [but] they were just more songs. They weren't saying, 'OK, tuck your whole summer in.'"
