Kanye Wests’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy reached its tenth anniversary this month. Kim Kardashian celebrated the milestone by revealing an interesting fact about one of the songs.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West only started dating in 2012, but it’s clear that the rapper always loved Kim. The pair have been friends since 2003 and ever shared a spark of chemistry even as friends.
Although Kim was in a relationship with Kris Humphries in 2010, she and Kanye shared a special bond. See the poem that Kanye wrote for Kim’s 30th birthday and how it made it to his decade-old album.
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is Kanye West’s fifth studio album released in November 2010. The Grammy award-winning record is one of West’s most critically acclaimed pieces of work till this day.
“He pushes his sound a few steps farther past hip-hop, R&B, and pop by telling a story about his hopes, faults, and brash beliefs.”Says Mariel Concepcion
Billboard’s Mariel Concepcion confessed that the album was arguably the best of its release year. The collection of music explored themes such as religion, love, lust, drug abuse, emotional pain, and more.
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy marked an era where Kanye was more vulnerable in his music. The hip hop icon had already started experimenting with different sounds and intimate lyrics in the album before the 2010 classic.
