Kanye West’s new song “XTCY” dropped early in August but officially just dropped a few days ago. The song references Kim’s sisters in questionable lyrics and a painted version of a photo taken at Kylie’s 21st birthday party.
Kanye West referenced Kendall, Kylie, Khloé and Kourtney in his new song “XTCY” in the lyrics as well as the album art. However, the reference made in the lyrics is a little bit questionable.
The lyrics to the song specifically read “You got sick thoughts? I got more of ’em/ You got a sister in law you would smash? I got four of them.”
At the end of the song Kanye says these are all thoughts he’s had while on ecstasy. The song was reportedly originally going to be on Kanye’s new album “Ye” but it didn’t make it onto the final album. The single officially dropped a few days ago despite Kanye allowing it to release earlier in the month.
The album art comes from a photo taken at Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party of the five sisters flipping the camera off. “Momager” Kris is also in the original photo but was taken out of the album art, obviously she’s not be a sister Kanye would “smash.”
The artist who created the interesting interpretation of the group was contacted by Kanye just a few days before the album art came out according to Garage. The artist is a 23-year old London based artist named Shadi Al-Atallah. Due to the timeline she was was given, she had about a day to create the art. Al-Atallah was reportedly surprised to due the fact that she just graduated and had no connection to the music industry.
