Kanye West is already working on his next album, Turbo Grafx 16, but the music world is still soaking in his latest release, The Life of Pablo. While it's still rather early to try and figure out where the project lands in Kanye's overall catalog, it's never too early to pick out some favorite songs from the album.
Though fans have been doing that since the album dropped, it's always fun to see what people close to 'Ye would pick out as their own personal favorites. Well, thanks to Kim Kardashian, we now know, as she just updated her site with some of the crew's picks for their favorite songs from The Life of Pablo. The list includes Don C, Mike Dean, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Ibn Jasper, and more. You can check out the full list with explanations of why they picked the song below.
“It's tough to just pick one … Maybe 'Ultralight Beam' and 'Father Stretch My Hands Pt.1 & 2' right now. Because Ye is showing his skills and musical talent are on a different level than anyone else. Really this whole album is displaying that. #facts” — Don C
“'I Love Kanye' is my favorite. The album itself is a work of art, so it's hard to dissect a particular song. This song sums up the whole album in my mind. It's an interlude that only Kanye could think and write. It sums up his ability to create and self-analyze. In an essence, it's a song that spans the sentiment of his career and legacy all at the same time.” — Virgil Abloh
“'Wolves' is my favorite. Ever since I heard it last season, closing Yeezy 2, I have been addicted, and I get everyone else addicted. It's a perfect song!” — Jonathan Cheban
“I really love 'Fade.' I remember months ago when Ye played it for me off his laptop while we were driving in my car lol, and its been my favorite ever since.” — Steph Shep
“'No More Parties in L.A.!'” — Kendall Jenner
“'Father Stretch My Hands' (both parts), 'Famous' and 'Feedback' because they are very intense and dynamic. Then 'Waves,' 'Ultra Light Beam' and 'Highlights,' I like for their beauty.” — Ibn Jasper
“It's almost too hard to pick. Hmmm … I think 'Highlights.'” — Kourtney Kardashian
“'Ultralight Beam' is just the best feeling you could ask for. I'm Jewish and I fuck with that song sooooo heavy, just like I love 'Jesus Walks.' It transcends religion. It's just a beautiful piece of music from start to finish. Perfection. The second half of 'FML' is basically how I feel most days in a nutshell. It's punk as fuck but super musical and emotional at the same time. Some of the illest music on the album, for sure.” — Noah Goldstein
“My fav song is 'Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1' because of the cool bass line I put in it. And the 'bleached asshole line. — Mike Dean
“I love the Rihanna song!!! 'Famous.'” — Khloé Kardashian
“This was hard, but my favorite song of the moment is 'Freestyle 4.' First, I love the unexpected song structure. It pulls you in different directions. Second, the idea of it as a freestyle, which is one of the purest sources of creating a song. It's that pure state of Kanye's eccentric thought process and live-editing which I identify with. It's how I work. It's how I think. It's wild. ” — Heron Preston
“One of my favorite songs from the new album is 'Fade.' I love the beat a lot in the song; it has an old-school vibe to it, and it takes me back to my NYC clubbing days. ” — Mario Dedivanovic
“I love 'FML.'” — Kylie Jenner
