Kanye West Makes Changes to ‘Yeezus’ on Apple Music
The Life of Pablo is not the only album that Kanye West has tinkered with of late. It turns out that the G.O.O.D. Music boss also made some changes to his 2013 album Yeezus for the version that currently appears on Apple Music.
Spin has confirmed a few observations by fans that Kanye West uploaded a slightly altered version of Yeezus to Apple Music. One fan noticed that the beginning of "Black Skinhead" now features a more distorted vocal than the original version of the song.
The other alteration is a change to the song "Send It Up." The modification comes around the 1:30 mark where Kanye raps, "This the greatest shit in the club/Since 'In Da Club'/It’s so packed I might ride around/On my bodyguard back like Prince in the club." This rendition removes the instrumental when Kanye delivers the last two lines of this section.
The reworked version of the two songs only appear on Apple Music. Yeezus remains untouched on other streaming services like Tidal and Spotify. According to Spin, some fans are noting that the edits may not be entirely new. These changes might be holdovers from leaks and earlier revisions from the original release of Yeezus.
It is not clear why these revisions are only available on the Apple Music version of the album, but it could simply be establishing that all of Kanye West's work is fair game for changes. While it seems like he has not put The Life of Pablo or Yeezus away for good, the Chicago native is working on new album titled Turbo Grafx 16.
