In the weeks following the album's initial release, Kanye West made tweaks to The Life of Pablo. The move seemed uniquely Kanye, facilitated by a unique rollout that involved only digital distribution rather than pressed physical copies.
It seemed like 'Ye had finally put his brush down and let the paint dry on his seventh solo album, but all that changed overnight when TLOP again underwent a change: "Saint Pablo," a song which he first debuted live in the days following the album's release, now appears as the last track on the album.

Given how long it's been since TLOP first dropped, the latest update is a bit surprising. But maybe it shouldn't be. We were warned this would happen.
