Aghhhhh!!!!!!!!!! Okay I’m gonna go ahead and take FULL credit for this moment right here. Yesterday I spent 6-7 hours kinda, sorta neglecting my children as I collected my 25 favorite Kanye West songs and shared them with y’all, via one of our most epic Throwback Thursday. And as I toiled over each video embed I thought, OMG Shannon why are you doing this to me?! I’m exhausted! But deep down I think I was hoping the universe or the gods of leaked albums would hear my cries. And they have. Kanye‘s new album Yeezus is streaming for free, in its glorious entirety HERE on my favorite music website soundisstyle. Seriously. Go HERE now, then click inside to share your thoughts! Do you love it?! Are you freaking out?!
Yesterday we also got a hold of the tracklist for Yeezus and I openly admitted that– based on what I was hearing– I expected to like the album, but I didn’t expect to love it. Well, maybe I’m just excited, maybe I’m still reeling from all of his Throwback jams we shared yesterday, but… I am effing loving the eff out of this album! Now that I’m hearing all the songs collectively, it just makes so much sense to me. And it sounds friggen dope.
We learned yesterday that Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, Chief Keef, and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon were all featured artists. Oh, and God. Well KiD Cudi is also on the album and um… yeah I’m busy listening so it’s hard to type. Also just found out Rick Rubin executive produced the album; he spoke with the Wall Street Journal about his role on the project, and I’m reading some of that now.
I’m just overwhelmed with Yeezus everything right now. I seriously was not expecting this leak and I really hope it doesn’t get taken down by the time y’all read this! Aghhh! Even so, I can safely say that the album is absolutely worth copping on June 18. I mean, I already knew that it would be, but damn. I’m really digging it!
OMGEEEEeeee there’s a reggae track! Aghhh! I love it! And a song that begins with the lyrics from Billie Holiday‘s Strange Fruit! Aghhh! I can’t!
