Kanye West has been in the headlines for weeks for all the wrong things, prompting many long time fans and followers to “cancel Kanye” after his declaration that he supports his “brother,” Donald Trump.

Well on Thursday night, Yeezy got back to the music as he held a private screening/listening party for his new album ‘YE‘ which arrives on Friday (June 1). Although he had previously teased the album, there had not been any official singles, videos, or announcement of a release date until now.

The event was reportedly attended by a very specific and private list of his friends, families and select journalists, and was also live streamed as well. According to most in attendance and from fans who listened to the stream, the album is reportedly one of his best, and some are willing to accept him back based on what they heard. According to Vibe:

The new LP features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug, Charlie Wilson, and more.

On the album, Kanye makes references to Russell Simmons’ sexual assault allegations, the #MeToo Movement, Stormy Daniels, and his comments on slavery.

The Chicago native did invite a select group of journalists, friends, and family to a private listening of the album in Wyoming, where Chris Rock introduced the new project. He also streamed the session on the WAV app for viewers at home. “Welcome to the world premiere of the latest opus of Kanye, entitled, Ye,” Rock said, shouting out Nas, Ty Dolla $ign, Pusha T, and Big Sean.

Ahead of the album’s release, G.O.O.D Music’s  Malik Yusef regarded the project as “our best s**t 2 date,” and it seems that many would agree. Fans have been buzzing on social media for the last few hours about the project. “No man has taken more advantage of his freedom than Kanye West,” he added.
