Kanye West apparently shot the album art on his iPhone on the way to the listening party.
So we’re still waiting for Kanye West’s new album, titled Ye, to hit streaming platforms, but we do have some new information on it in the meantime. On Thursday night, Kanye debuted the project to a select lucky few at a ranch outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming at his private listening party. Pretty much everyone affiliated with Kanye was there in attendance, all of G.O.O.D Music (Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Teyana Taylor, Desiigner, Pusha T, 070 Shake), as well as Kim Kardashian, Nas, Tim Westwood, actor Jonah Hill, and even Chris Rock, who actually hosted the event.
Unfortunately for the rest of us, Ye has yet to hit streaming services so we’re not officially sure who’s going to be listed on the album & its tracklist, but we do have a strong idea thanks to the listening party. Ye will apparently features guest appearances from Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ign, Frank Ocean, Willow Smith and surprisingly enough Nicki Minaj, who appears on the outro track called "Cry Tonight."
From what twitter & reports are saying, Kanye addresses everything from Donald Trump, his recent personal trial & tribulations, #MeToo movement, drug addition, and more on the album. He also references Wiz Khalifa, Stormi Daniels, Russell Simmons, Sway, Tristan Thompson, and his wife Kim Kardashian, among many other people.
As for the cover art we've yet to see, Kim Kardashian says that Kanye shot the cover art on his iPhone on the way to the listening event.
We’ll be sure to share the project with you once it becomes available on streaming platforms, but in the meantime check out some photos from the listening party (below).
