After much anticipation, Kanye West’s new album, “The Life of Pablo,” formerly known as “WAVES,” formerly known as “SWISH,” formerly known as “So Help Me God,” is finally finished.
West debuted the new album in conjunction with Yeezy Season 3, the latest installment of his fashion line with Adidas, in front of a live audience at Madison Square Garden.
The event was also live-streamed in select theaters around the world and online through streaming service Tidal, owned by West’s “Watch the Throne” partner Jay-Z.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell and rapper Young Thug were among the models who walked in the show.
Pusha T, Travis Scott and the Kardashian clan were in attendance. Michael Jordan apparently declined his invitation. It is unclear if any “awesome wrestlers” made it.
The final tracklist for “The Life of Pablo” includes 10 songs with appearances by artists Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, Rihanna and Chance the Rapper and production from Swizz Beatz, Q-Tip and Rick Rubin.
West will be the musical guest for the Feb. 13 episode of “Saturday Night Live” with host Melissa McCarthy. This marks his first appearance on the show since debuting eventual “The Life of Pablo” track “Wolves” alongside Sia and Vic Mensa at SNL 40 in 2015.
After a busy week for West, which also included hosting a party celebrating the Yeezy Season 2 zine, he apparently doesn’t want to be bothered until Monday.
