How To Listen To Kanye West’s New Album ‘YE’

01 June 2018

True to his word, Kanye West has delivered his new studio album Ye tonight via a livestream event from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Bobby Brown was there during Whitney Houston's darkest drug-induced moments, so when he learned that Pusha T was using his ex-wife's messy drug-laden bathroom photo as cover art, he was repulsed.

After seeing the cover, Brown asked Rolling Stone, "Why would he post that on his album cover?" "That's really disgusting that he would do that".

'Now he's pushing the bar a little bit.

The picture is from 2006 and shows the late singer's bathroom; it was taken by one of Houston's family members.

Brown continued, "He needs somebody to slap him up or something". According to Pusha, the original cover art "was pictures that we all agreed on". Brown is speaking out because she feels the public believes she profited off the exploitation of Whitney again with the photo on Pusha-T's "Daytona" album, which was reportedly licensed for $85,000. "And I'm just the person to do it", said Brown.

But Houston's nephew defended Pusha-T's use of the picture. In 2010, he said on stage that he "there were times that I contemplated suicide" and his recent interview with Charlamgne Tha God, he discussed having a mental breakdown, instead calling it a "breakthrough". "Russell Simmons want to pray for me too/ I pray for him because he got Me Too'd", he rapped. "I love myself way more than I love you".
