Great news Yeezus fans — Kanye Wests new album, may finally be on its way! The rapper took to Twitter on Feb. 10 to reveal that after weeks of back-and-forth he’s finally settled on a new name and track list for his long-awaited follow-up to ‘Yeezus.’ Get the full details here!
All we can say is FINALLY! After weeks of teasing new songs and album names on social media, Kanye West took to Twitter on Feb. 10 to reveal that his highly-anticipated new album may finally be ready to hit the masses. In addition to debuting an entirely new track list, Yeezy also appeared to reveal yet another album name, and of course, it’s unlike anything we would have expected. See it here!
Kanye’s buzzed-about new album has already gone through names like So Help Me God, SWISH, and Waves, but it appears after much back-and-forth, he may have finally landed on a winner (or so we hope, anyways). After seemingly hinting at the album’s new name, “TLOP,” in a tweet posted on Feb. 9, the rapper returned to the social platform once again on Feb. 10, this time to share a photo of his “final track list” along with what appears to be the album’s full name: The Life of Pablo!
First things first, let’s talk about the track list. In addition to the previously unveiled “Wolves” and “Fade” and the recent G.O.O.D. Friday drops “Real Friends,” The Life of Pablo will apparently boast a total of seven other new cuts, all of which we’ve spelt out for you below:
The Life of Pablo track list
1. “Ultra Light Beams”
2. “Father Stretch My Hands: Pt. 1 and Pt. 2”
3. “Freestyle 4”
5. “High Lights”
6. “Feed Back”
9. “Real Friends”
Interestingly enough, his sweet tribute song to his mother Donda and daughter North West, “Only One,” still did not make the cut, nor did his other collaboration with Paul McCartney and Rihanna, “FourFiveSeconds,” which the three performed last year at the Grammys. Also missing are a handful of songs from his previously released track list for the then titled Swish album, including “Nina Chop,” “Waves,” “30 Hours,” and his Kendrick Lamar collaboration, “No More Parties in L.A.” This is honestly almost too much to handle, Kanye!
As for the identity of the mysterious “Pablo” moniker, many across the web have suggested that Kanye may be referring to either Pablo Picasso or the famous drug lord Pablo Escobar. In the past, Kanye has compared himself to the Cubist painter, giving us every good reason to believe that the Spanish artist may in fact be the inspiration behind the mysterious moniker. But then again, who knows. Perhaps Kanye is just a huge closet Narcos fan and this album was his way of expressing that fact to his fans. Either way, it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Feb. 11 to know for sure — that is, unless he pulls a fast one on us once more and changes up the name again. Literally, anything can happen at this point.
