Arquivo da categoria ‘Kanye West’

O rapper Kanye West, que voltou ao topo da lista dos mais vendidos após ficar afastado da mídia.

Após passar um ano afastado da mídia depois do incidente no Video Music Awards (VMA) do ano passado, o rapper Kanye West voltou ao topo da lista dos álbuns mais vendidos nos Estados Unidos com seu novo trabalho, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”.

O disco chegou nesta quarta-feira ao topo da lista “Billboard 200”, com 496 mil cópias vendidas nos EUA.

O novo álbum já vendeu mais que seu último, “808’s & Heartbreak”, de 2008, que vendeu 450 mil cópias em sua semana de estreia.

Curiosamente, quem está em quarto lugar na lista é a cantora country Taylor Swift. No ano passado, West tomou o microfone da mão da cantora enquanto ela agradecia pelo prêmio de melhor videoclipe.

“Taylor, me desculpe, eu vou deixar você terminar, mas a Beyoncé tem um dos melhores clipes de todos os tempos”, disse West se referindo ao clipe da música “Single Ladies”, que também concorria ao prêmio.

Parece que My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy vai ser mesmo lançado no dia 22 de novembro. A gente diz isso porque o disco vem sofrendo inúmeras alterações e suas faixas tem ganho diferentes versões, como é o caso de All Of The Lights, quarto single do disco.

Se a versão anterior dessa música contava apenas com a participação de Drake e Tony Williams, esta, que tudo indica ser a definitiva, tem também as vozes de John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Rihanna e Elton John.

Apesar de parecer mais um dos delírios de grandeza de Kanye West e a participação de alguns dos artistas citados quase passar batida, All The Lights deve alcançar uma boa posição nos rankings gringos. Ouça a faixa e confira a letra da música após o jump!

All of the lights (all of the lights)

Turn up the lights in here baby
extra bright, I want y’all to see this
turn up the lights in here, baby
you know what I need
want you to see everything
Want you to see all of the lights

Fast cars, shooting stars
(all of the lights, all of the lights)

Something wrong
I hold my head
MJ gone…our n-gga dead!
I slapped my girl, she called the feds
I did that time and spent that bread
I’m heading home, I’m almost there
I’m on my way, heading up the stairs
to my surprise, a n-gga replacing me
I had to take ‘em to that ghetto university

[Estribillo]
all of the lights
cop lights, flash lights, spot lights
strobe lights, street lights
(all of the lights, all of the lights)
fast life, drug life
thug life, rock life
every night
(all of the lights)

Restraining order
can’t see my daughter
her mother, brother, grandmother hate me in that order
public visitation
we met at Borders
told her she take me back
I’ll be more supportive
I made mistakes
I bump my head
courts suck me dry
I spent that bread
she need a daddy
baby please, can’t let her grow up in that ghetto university

[Estribillo]
