UPDATE: It appears that the song has already been taken down from Apple Music. The song was streaming at this link, but it no longer seems to be working. We have reached out to a rep at Apple for comment, and will update when we know more.
Kanye West’s “Saint Pablo” has had an interesting life already. The song was debuted by Kanye at L.A. nightclub 1OAK not long after The Life of Pablo had been released, drawing immediate praise for its introspective rapping and open address of his debt. Plus, Kanye and Sampha on a track? That was always going to produce special results.
A leaked CDQ version of the track surfaced online a couple of weeks ago, but now the official version is here, and the track is still sounding brilliant—honest, at times hilarious, and 100% Kanye with a line comparing himself to Einstein. No word if this is the first official single from Turbo Grafx ’16, but if Kanye keeps releasing music at this pace, 2016 is going to be a big year for him.
“I wrote Saint Pablo after admitting to my greatest shame my personal debt. But I’m not ashamed anymore,” Kanye tweeted. Listen to the official version of “Saint Pablo,” streaming via Apple Music below.
