Kanye West & Kid Cudi's listening party: Here's what went down - Explica®

Kanye West and Kid Cudi to hold album-listening event

Kanye West and Kid Cudi to hold album-listening event

After a year of silence in which he sought treatment for mental health, West roared back in April with typical headline-grabbing antics as he became a rare African American celebrity to support President Donald Trump.

But there were some notable glitches, the biggest being a technical issue with the WAV application (which West previously used to debut Ye) delaying the livestream from the listening session by almost three hours.

Just one week after unleashing his new album "ye" at a star-studded party in Wyoming, West teamed up with Cudi for another extravagant listening event, this time in Santa Clarita, California. It was played twice in full. Celebrity guests included Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson, Courtney Love, Lil Dicky, Lena Waithe, YG, iLoveMakonnen, Desiigner, Pete Wentz, Travis Barker, Lizzo, Joshua Jackson, and Zane Lowe.

By contrast, the delay for the listening party of "Kids See Ghosts" extended to its release.

While the launch party takes place tonight (June 7) in Los Angeles, CA, Kanye West and Kid Cudi are ensuring that those not attendance won't get FOMO (fear of missing out).

The album will be the latest in a string of LPs produced by Kanye to come out in recent weeks, following his own Ye and Pusha-T's Daytona.

So to help, the good people at G.O.O.D. Guest artists include Pusha T and Ty Dolla $ign. That said, there has been some confusion regarding the tracklist, which turned out to be incorrect when the album was sent to Apple Music and other streaming services.
