One of the most vulnerable moments on Kanye West’s recently released album, ye, is “Wouldn’t Leave.” On the song, the father of three apologizes to his wife for making the controversial statement on TMZ that slavery was “a choice.” During the first verse, Kanye raps, “My wife callin’, screamin’, say we ’bout to lose it all / Had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe / Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn’t leave.” Now, in a newinterview with ET, Kim Kardashian has opened up about hearing the song for the very first time.
“Did I talk about it? Did I scream about it? Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah,” Kardashian admitted. “That’s not stuff we put on social media, but yeah, we have those moments. That was the one song that he didn’t really play for me until last minute, so I heard that last minute and it meant a lot to me. But yeah, we have different views sometimes, but that’s my husband, you know?”
In n the same interview, Kardashian gave some insight into the creation of ye, revealing that her husband scrapped the project and started over just weeks before it was set to be released.
“I was in the room for making all of the songs and hearing things, and it’s a really fascinating process, especially since he scrapped his whole album and redid it in the last two weeks and just came up with all new songs,” she said. “I left to go home for, like, two days and then I come back and it was a whole new album. It’s fascinating to see the process.”
Ye is headed toward a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. On Monday (June 4), the Chicago rapper took to Twitter to thank fans for supporting the project.
West’s next project is a collaborative album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, which drops this Friday (June 8). Hopefully he won’t scrap this one so close to the deadline as he did
