Last week, after months of hype and controversial social media statements, Kanye West finally released his newest studio album, previously rumored to be called Love Everyone, but ultimately titled ye. The generally well-regarded eighth album from the notorious rapper is a minor effort in the spirit of his 2010 concept album masterpiece My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, where Kanye West addresses his mental disorders and his troubled relationship with the public and the media. Among the album's most-discussed tracks is "Won't Leave," where Kanye talks about the aftermath of some of his recent criticized comments, and how that damaged his famous marriage to Kim Kardashian West. While we've obviously heard Kanye's side of the story, we haven't heard from Kim Kardashian West ... until now.
