The Internet stood still at 4 p.m. yesterday when Kanye streamed his new album, The Life Of Pablo, on Tidal. At times the Internet did literally stop, because Tidal’s server couldn’t support the masses of people who wanted to tune in. If you were among the population who didn’t have all eyes on Ye, here are the 10 biggest things that happened at yesterday’s event.
1. Kanye plugged his laptop into Madison Square Garden
Thus putting all other “aux cord” jokes to rest.
2. He premiered his highly anticipated album, The Life Of Pablo
which featured Rihanna, Chance The Rapper, Kid Cudi, The Weeknd and more.

It was very nude and neutral. As expected.
4. Frank Ocean came out of hiding

He told Vogue editor Anna Wintour this backstage.
