Kanye West’s new album Ye is officially available to stream.
UPDATE // JUNE 6:
It appears Kanye West’s new album yeis performing better than predicted. Hits Daily Double revised the rapper’s first-week sales upwards.
As it stands, Kanye’s new record is expected to cross the 200K threshold with 205-225k sales plus streaming, 74-79k of which are pure sales.
Needless to say, he should debut at No. 1.
UPDATE // JUNE 4:
Kanye has exhausted me, but his new album Ye is really good (stream below). A lot of you agree.
According to a new report from HDD, Kanye is on track to move 175-190k total (including streams), 70-80k in sales.
It even moved Kanye to tears. Kanye is crying guys!
I feel so blessed. For everyone that didn’t turn they back. I’m in tears right now. I love all of you pic.twitter.com/8jwIALBsDu

EARLIER // JUNE 1:
The most accurate headline does exist. Kanye put music bloggers through it this year. After disappearing for quite a while, the rapper-producer extraordinaire snuck away to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to work on new music. What he created during that time post-breakdown is now out.
The album is called Ye. Kanye premiered it at midnight on Thursday via a live stream from Jackson Hole. It features guest spots from Ty Dolla $ign, Valee, Jeremih, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Charlie Wilson, Kid Cudi, John Legend, 070 Shake, Nicki Minaj, DeJ Loaf, and Willow Smith.
By the time you read this, I have personally listened to Ye twice, so my thoughts over time will inevitably change. However, my initial reaction is positive. Ye is short, but strong. There’s no sense in creating a marathon for us to sit through, and I appreciate that about Kanye. He gave us so much garbage to sift through these last few weeks – photographing himself in a MAGA hat, meeting with right-wing pundit Candace Owens, that an album free of excess was much deserved. Actually, he owed us that.
Listen to Ye below:
