The Life of Pablo is the seventh studio album by Kanye West. It was released by GOOD Music and Def Jam Recordings on February 14, 2016, originally exclusively through the streaming service TIDAL, following a lengthy series of delays in its recording and mastering. Recording of the album dated back to the sessions for West’s fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and took place in various locations. Kanye began working on the album with a title of So Help Me God in mind. That changed back in May 2015 when he updated it to SWISH. On January 26, 2016, West posted the finalized track listing on his Twitter account, along with another tentative title of the album, WAVES.
Fast forward to today and we now have The Life of Pablo, an eighteen track project that features guest appearances from Kid Cudi, Desiigner, Chance The Rapper, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, Posta Malone, Andre 3000, Frank Ocean, Chris Brown, The Weeknd and many more.
The album premiered on February 11th, 2016 at Madison Square Garden during Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show, and was live-streamed at hundreds of theaters across the world and on Tidal’s streaming service. It was released for download and streaming exclusively on TIDAL on February, 14th, 2016.
