West releases his fourth studio album, 808s & Heartbreak. An electropop and R&B album, 808s & Heartbreak sounds nothing like his previous works. The album, which West describes as “minimal but functional”, is primarily sung rather than rapped and contains extensive use of the Auto-Tune voice processor. The album features themes of love, loneliness, and heartache.
It’s a little bit of autotune and a whole lot of f*cked up life. This album was therapeutic- its lonely at the top.
