Another day, another leak from Kanye West’s Life of Pablo. The latest find from Yeezy’s stash is a demo version of “Highlights” with none other than Madonna found on the track.
Right now, it seems like there’s just as much constant chaos around the project now as there was before it released on Tidal. Before the LP arrived, we saw title and tracklist taking on different forms. After the release, cutting room floor versions of songs keep finding their way onto the Internet, highlighted by Thursday’s sizable offering that fell from audio heaven. The version here with Madge, discovered by fansite Madonnarama, features her occupying what ended up being Young Thug’s place on the version we’re familiar with.
As Spin points out, “Highlights” wouldn’t be the first time the unlikely pairing has worked together. Kanye produced a few cuts on Madonna’s Rebel Heart album from last year and had vocals on her 2008 track, “The Beat Goes On.”
