In a new interview, Kim K dished on Kanye changing his new LP’s overall sound and lyrics.
“He had a whole different album, and maybe two weeks ago, he just came in, woke up one morning, and redid the whole thing. Like, new beats, he did the whole thing all over again. It’s actually really, really cool [in Wyoming]. It’s really chill. It just seems nothing matters when you’re here. You can just unplug when you’re here. He can actually just focus, because if he records in L.A. or New York, there are so many people who want to stop by. He’s just, like, ‘I can’t. Like, I just gotta go away.’” (Power 106 FM)
Less than a week since its released, Kanye has already performed a live update on his “I Thought About Killing You” song.
On ‘I Thought About Killing You’, there is a new line that can be heard on the last verse of the song. After “If I wasn’t shinin’ so hard, wouldn’t be no shade,” the rapper now rhymes, “Sorry but I chose not to be no slave.” Interestingly, this change has only appeared on the clean version of the song on almost all platforms — the dirty version of the song still doesn’t feature the line.

Earlier in the week, reports emerged about the 7-track project doing ridiculous numbers on various streaming giants.
Kanye West’s album, “Ye,” is already crushing numbers … and it’s only been available for a few days. Numbers for the 7-song project are astounding — Kanye’s filled the top 7 song spots on both Spotify and Apple Music — and the album’s already accumulated over 100 million streams total.
To add to those stats …
— #1 iTunes Album in 63 countries.
— #1 Spotify global peak position.
— #1 Apple Music album in 83 countries. (TMZ)
