West’s seventh LP previously went by the names ‘Waves’, ‘Swish’ and ‘So Help Me God’. Initially announced as ‘So Help Me God’ in March 2015, West then changed his album’s title to ‘Swish’ a few months later in May 2015. Just a couple of weeks prior to the album’s official release though, West changed the name again to ‘Waves’. West then took to Twitter to confirm the album’s current title as ‘The Life Of Pablo’.

Kanye West made headlines in the run up to the launch event by by proclaiming Bill Cosby’s innocence on social media.
