Kanye West Updates “Wolves”: Sia & Vic Mensa Are Back On ‘The Life Of Pablo’ Version
UPDATE (3/16/16): After apparently tweaking “Famous,” Kanye has now delivered on his promise to “fix” “Wolves,” which he says was a three-week process.
The official Tidal (and only) version of The Life Of Pablo track once again features Sia and Vic Mensa. Frank Ocean‘s part has now been given a standalone track. No sign of Drake and Björk. See a screenshot and the original post below.
Kanye West already indicated the version of The Life Of Pablo that he released last month on Tidal wasn’t officially finished, last week saying he’d complete the “final mixes” of the album. And while very little he has said during this reign of Twitter terror has been dependable, he followed through on his word this time: a minor tweak has appeared on LP track “Famous.”

A reddit user pointed out that the line “She be Puerto Rican day parade wavin'” has been changed to “She in school to be a real estate agent,” along with some differences in the song’s mix. These are seemingly minor revisions, but it’s pretty consequential when you pair it with West’s decree that he’s only releasing albums digitally from now on — he’s basically opening the door for released projects to be constantly tweaked to the maker’s liking, like software updates, or a reissue without the logistical headache of an actual re-release.
And, of course, this provides an inkling of hope that a subsequent TLOP update will include that mythical “fixed” version of “Wolves,” which may or may not include Drake and Björk assists.
