Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s highly anticipated collaborative album has arrived.

Independently released on Saturday, February 10, VULTURES Vol. 1 follows their extensive listening sessions in Chicago and New York. The tracklist differs from previous reports, with “Stars” opening and “King” closing the album. Despite anticipation for numerous collaborations, only tracks like “Talking” featuring North West, “Back to Me” with Freddie Gibbs, “Do It” featuring YG and Nipsey Hussle, “Beg Forgiveness” with Chris Brown, and the title track made it to the final cut.

The album also boasts unexpected collaborations like “Keys To My Life” featuring India Love, “Paperwork” featuring Quavo, “Carnival” with Carti & Rich The Kid, and an alternate version of “F*k Sumn” featuring Playboi Carti & Travis Scott. VULTURES dropped shortly after the release of the “Talking/Once Again” music video starring Ye, Ty, and their daughters, along with various alternate versions of the title track, including one produced by Havoc of Mobb Deep. This release comes after months of delays and multiple iterations of the tracklist, largely due to clearance issues faced by Ye and Ty.

Initially, when they debuted the album last year, Ye and Ty included the song “Everybody” with Charlie Wilson and Lil Baby as the intro, sampling Backstreet Boys’ 1997 hit. However, this track was scrapped after the boy band’s team claimed they never cleared the sample. Following the duo’s recent listening sessions, Ozzy Osbourne claimed that Ye used a sample of Black Sabbath’s 1983 hit “Iron Man” in the song “Carnival,” despite Osbourne denying permission. Although the song made it onto the album, the sample was removed before its release on streaming platforms.

Despite numerous setbacks, VULTURES Vol. 1 arrived exactly 20 years after Ye released his debut album The College Dropout. In typical Ye fashion, his debut album was also delayed multiple times before finally dropping on February 10, 2004.
