“The Life Of Pablo” — Kanye West Reveals New Album Title (PHOTO)
Kanye West‘s new album will be called The Life Of Pablo, he revealed on Wednesday after much speculation and several changes.
As Gossip Cop reported, West originally announced the record would be called So Help Me God. That seemed in keeping with a religious theme after his last offering was titled Yeezus. But then West changed the name to Swish.
Most recently, he changed it again to Waves. That prompted an online blow-back, most notably from Wiz Khalifa. He accused West of trying to copy the imprisoned rapper Max B, who had released several Wave mix tapes. A feud between West and Khalifa ensued, though as it evolved, it had more to do with Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose than anything else.
Then West hinted he’d be changing the album name yet again. On Tuesday, he teased fans by just giving the initials: T.L.O.P. He even tweeted, “That’s the new album anybody who can figure out the title gets tickets to Season 3 and free Yeezys.”
It’s unclear if anyone managed to guess correctly, but it seems unlikely given the apparent randomness of what the title actually is: The Life Of Pablo. West finally gave the answer on Wednesday night, revealing the final track list at the same time (see below). And it certainly came down to the wire, as West is expected to premiere the album in full on Thursday during his “Yeezy Season 3” New York Fashion Week Show.
