Kanye West‘s seventh studio album. Release date: February 11, 2016.
In November 2013, West began working on his seventh album (though some tracks may have existed earlier, as the album promo track “No More Parties in LA” was produced during the studio sessions for West’s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy).
The album was initially titled So Help Me God, and was slated for release in 2014. This version of the album, which never materialized, included several tracks which were released such as “God Level” (released as part of an Adidas World Cup promo), “Tell Your Friends” (later given to The Weeknd), “3500” (given to Travis Scott), “All Your Fault” (given to Big Sean), “All Day” and “Only One”. In February 2015, the only tracks from this version appearing to make the final cut for The Life of Pablo are “Famous” (formerly titled “Nina Chop”) and “Wolves”, which West performed on Saturday Night Live’s 40th-anniversary episode.
In May 2015, West renamed the album to SWISH, clarifying that it still could be changed. On January 26, 2016, West posted the finalized track listing on his Twitter account, along with another tentative title of the album, called Waves. On February 4, West confirmed on Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show, that he still didn’t have a final album title. On February 9, West tweeted that the acronym of the album title was T.L.O.P. It was revealed the next day via Twitter that the final album title was The Life of Pablo.
