(AllHipHop News) Kanye West’s Ye album came in the early hours of Friday, June 1, following an album listening in Wyoming where he flew out select media, friends, and family to partake in the festivities.

Speaking with Power 106, the G.O.O.D. Music founder revealed redoing the entire project after his erratic behavior on TMZ Live.

West stated, “I redid the whole album after TMZ. Just [because] energy… I was sitting in Calabasas. I’m working on my sweatpants and my shoes, and everything was going perfectly. As soon as stuff stopped going so perfectly, I was like, ‘Oh, I know what to do with this energy.’”

Ye is Kanye's eighth album. According to the numbers, the album is on pace to move about 750,000 units in its first week.
