Kanye West album features Rihanna, Future, Young Thug, Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean
Kanye West’s roster of featured artists on The Life of Pablo matches the high-profile platform he used to debut the album.
Rihanna, Future, Frank Ocean, Chance the Rapper, and Young Thug were among the artists heard during the Madison Square Garden presentation of West’s seventh studio album and his new fashion line, Yeezy Season 3. Ty Dolla $ign, The-Dream, Kid Cudi, Post Malone, and Kirk Franklin also appear on the 10-track effort.
Ocean’s appearance on the album and in the MSG crowd is noteworthy. The 28-year-old artist released his debut album Channel Orange in summer 2012 and has largely stayed out of the spotlight. Rumors pointed to a sophomore effort dropping last summer, but it has yet to be released.
