Kanye West’s New Album ‘The Life of Pablo’ Is Finally Streaming: Listen
After all the hype, it’s finally here.
Kanye West went through four potential album titles (the LP was formerly Swish, Waves and So Help Me God) and a handful of track switch-ups before he finally settled on The Life of Pablo as the name of his seventh album, and you can finally listen to it — in full — exclusively over at TIDAL.

Kanye offered a first listen of Pablo (February 11) to thousands of lucky fans, celebs and fashionistas at Madison Square Garden, where he also debuted his new fashion collection, Yeezy Season 3. His wife, Kim Kardashian, the couple’s daughter, North, and the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan showed their solidarity by attending and sporting white and loads of bling. Lamar Odom, Jaden Smith and Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour watched, too, as herds of models — including veteran cat-walker Naomi Campbell — rocked the artist’s latest threads.
And, though many fans weren’t lucky enough to score tickets to see the big New York Fashion Week event in person, Kanye streamed the experience via TIDAL.
During the album’s unveiling, Kanye explained that while he still considers himself a rap artist, he sees The Life of Pablo differently.
“This is really a gospel album, and this is something that couldn’t have happened without God holding me down,” he said. “It’s been a struggle. I feel so happy, I feel so much joy to create music without people s—ing on me.”
Following the event, Kanye brought back “Good Fridays,” through which he’ll release a new track from the upcoming album each week, and dropped “30 Hours.”
