Album Release and Cover Art

The joint album between Ye and Ty Dolla $ign, titled 'Vultures,' was released on February 9. The album can be streamed on various digital platforms, including Apple Music. However, there were some reports from listeners on X that the album was actually released early morning on February 10.

The album cover for 'Vultures' features Ye wearing a white hockey mask positioned behind a woman with her back turned towards the front. This differs from the earlier teaser image that was revealed to the public.

Ye, also known as Kanye West, held two listening parties for the album. The first one took place on February 8 in Chicago, followed by a second one on February 9 in New York. These listening parties have become a customary practice for Ye's album releases.

Ozzy Osbourne Controversy

Ozzy Osbourne, addressing Ye on X (formerly known as Twitter), expressed his disappointment for Ye's use of a sample from a live rendition of 'Iron Man' at his Chicago listening party. Osbourne revealed that Kanye West sought permission to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of 'Iron Man' from the US Festival but was refused usage. However, Ye went ahead and used the sample at his album listening party, prompting Osbourne to disassociate himself from Kanye West.

During the New York listening party, Ye replaced the controversial 'Iron Man' sample with a sample from one of his previous tracks, 'Hell of a Life.'
