The digital age strikes again.
Early Thursday morning, Kanye West’s collaboration with The-Dream and Justin Vernon on a song titled “Fall Out Of Heaven” randomly hit the Internet. Cool, cool, except little did we know there was much more to follow. The songs that have now littered Jams.to include many “original” versions of songs featured on The Life Of Pablo, including “Waves” with Chris Brown, “I Dont Like featuring Pusha T, Big Sean, Jadakiss and Chief Keef, The Mind is Powerful featuring Swizz Beats, Sin City, Only One featuring Caroline Shaw, Paul Mccartney Ty Dolla $ign, New Angels, I Miss The Old Kanye, Highlights featuring Young Thug, “FML” featuring Travi$ Scott and The Weeknd, Fade featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Post Malone and the “All Day” Remix featuring Kendrick Lamar of Black Hippy, Paul McCartney of The Beatles, Allan Kingdom Theophilus London.
West raps in Pablo song “Real Friends” his cousin stole his MacBook Air and had to pay him $250,000 to get it back. Could the new leaks have anything to do with it? “Cousin stole my laptop that I was f****** b****** on — paid $250,000 to get that back from him.” It was also reported that laptop housed sex tapes of Yeezy, so if there’s any correlation we have more to look forward to (???).
One noticeable difference is the infamous lyric in “Famous.” The original version actually says “I feel like Taylor swift owe me sex.”
We’re also hearing Kanye’s camp is responsible for the leak, so in that case…
Tinashe also faced a barrage of leaks on Thursday, and we believe they’re from her past mixtapes or her upcoming Joyride album. If so, she faces a similar dilemma Madonna dealt with last year ahead of her Rebel Heart release. When her entire catalogue of music was leaked weeks ahead of schedule, she was forced to drop the album much sooner than expected – needless to say it negatively impacted album sales. The latest Tinashe songs to surface are “Same Old Me,” “Pour Your Love On Me,” “No To Me,” “Just A Taste” and “April Moon.”
Last year, Tinashe was very vocal about leaking her own song “Party Favors” after many disagreements with her management team.
“I basically leaked the song. I wasn’t supposed to put it out,” she said at the time. “But I knew if I didn’t just put something out, I ran the risk of continuing to push back my singles and my whole process. I’ve got the songs, I need to put them out, I need people to hear them. I was just like, ‘F**k it. I’m putting it on SoundCloud.’ So that’s what I did, and then they had to follow up. They’re like,” — here, she mimes scrambling motions — “’We’ve got to put it on iTunes!’ That started the momentum and then we were able to put out the real single [“Player”].”
A rebellious move, eh?
“Yeah, but who knows? I’m not trying to diss my label because they’re awesome and they’re very supportive of me, but again it’s like, they’re playing a guessing game because you never know what’s the right thing to do. I felt like we were going in circles. People were arguing over which song should we put out first, what’s the first look. Sometimes it’s better to just force people to make a decision and be like, ‘You have to decide. No more wishy-washy.’”
Looks like the move was just made for her.
You can listen to them here, but we imagine they’ll get pulled sooner than later.
