Jackson Hole, WY – Kanye West finally unleashed his follow-up to 2016’s The Life of Pablo — Ye — during an exclusive listening party held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on Thursday (May 31) via the WAV app.

Nas, Chris Rock, A Tribe Called Quest’s Consequence, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, actor Jonah Hill, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Teyana Taylor and (not surprisingly) conservative commentator Candace Owens were among the many on deck to hear the album.
Over the past several months, artists like Drake, Travis Scott and Pusha T have been flying in and out of the mountainous Wyoming ski resort town where ‘Ye had been working on the project. Very little details were known about what the album would actually sound like prior to the Wyoming listening party.
Now that the seven-track album is out of the bag, Twitter exploded with reactions.
Check out the good (and bad) below.

Yo any and all controversy aside, this new Kanye West album is super hard, maybe one of his best. Sounds like he has the clarity he was missing on Pablo, and watching the stream, you can clearly see how much he still loves the music above all this other trash he be on #YeSeason
