"Keep My Spirit Alive" featuring Conway the Machine, KayCyy & Westside Gunn

By Yasmin Young

I had to hop a flight to Atlanta to check out the album release party. Let me say this, Kanye is a marketing genius. The stadium was packed and most of us purchased tickets, just to preview his new album. He was on stage the whole time, but didn't really "perform." Now, he did "levitate," which is kind of cool, but it definitely wasn't a concert. There were hundreds of people dressed in all black, who were walking around a circular gate around the stage for the entire show. I felt like it was an ode to Kanye's mom, Donda, the album's namesake. It felt like they were lost souls, mourning the greatest loss in their lives.

Another stand-out track to me and pretty much everyone in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta (judging from the crowd reaction) was "Jail" featuring Francis and the Lights and Jay-Z. Obviously, the reunion of "The Throne" was a pretty big deal. The album had a very spiritual vibe to it.
