The first thing you’ll notice is that nearly every single song has at least one feature on it. The idea of it is splitting fans down the middle, with some wanting to hear their favourite artists collaborate as much as possible and others wanting to hear mostly Kanye on his own album.
One of the songs that has caught the most attention on social media has been ‘Jail’, which features a verse from JAY-Z. On it, he raps “this might be the return of The Throne, Hova and Yeezus, like Moses and Jesus”, which got fans very excited. The pair hadn’t been on a song for years together, so a confirmed collaboration with the prospect of more music coming soon was great news.
As implied by some of the insiders that heard the music for the album before any of us did, we now know that a lot of the content is based around God and Christian themes in general.
