FINALLY. We thought ‘The Life of Pablo’ was coming after the Yeezy season three show, but it was delayed — a while — and actually dropped two days later after his ‘Saturday Night Live’ performance.
Kanye West, 38, just unleashed his long awaited new album, The Life Of Pablo — formerly known as WAVES, which was formerly known as SWISH — on fans. Yes, YEEZY season has definitely arrived. He took the stage twice on Saturday Night Live and then yelled that his album was finally on Tidal!
It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! No more waiting, no more name changing — Kanye’s new album is here, and it’s glorious. It is now available for seven days to TIDAL subscribers exclusively for with plus four bonus tracks on tidal.com. You can also download it on kanyewest.com for one week.
We were expecting the album after he played half of it at his NYFW show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, Feb. 11 in New York City. But he actually went on Twitter on Saturday morning to explain what the hold up was.
“It’s Chance’s fault the album not out yet… he really wanted Waves on that Bitch… we in the lab now…,” he tweeted at 1:35AM on Saturday. Chance the Rapper responded ten minutes later. “I fought everyone to keep Waves on the album. I spent all night finishing it. The world is better because of it,” Chance tweeted early in the morning on Saturday, followed by “Done” with a photo of the song list.
Of course, Kanye went back and forth before unveiling it with the name The Life Of Pablo. However, even though Kanye seemingly unveiled the album name on his Twitter account, it was unclear if he would change it one last time before releasing it. As previously mentioned, this album underwent a number of different titles, including WAVES, which caused a significant online beef between Kanye, Wiz Khalifa, and even their mutual ex, Amber Rose.
