New track 'Famous' re-addresses pair's public feud
On album ‘The Life of Pablo’, which has been released today, track ‘Famous’ contains Kanye rapping the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous”.
The lyrics come after a steady raft of social media spurts charted the build up to one of the year’s most anticipated albums, including West sharing the lyrics for new track ‘Father Stretch My Hands’.
The rapper has launched his new album with a listening party and fashion show at New York’s Madison Square Garden this evening (February 11). The arena event will mark the launch of West’s Yeezy Season 3 range with Adidas and the première of his new album. It will be live-streamed at cinemas worldwide.
Kanye interrupted Swift at the 2009 MTV VMA’s while she was collecting the award for Best Female, a title she nabbed ahead of Beyonce. Following the reconciliation at the MTV VMA Awards last year in 2015, the new lyrics addressing their old bond may come as a surprise.
Earlier this week, West announced that his new album’s current title bears the initials ‘TLOP’, revealing that the letters stand for ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
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 took to Twitter to confirm the album’s current title as ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
