Annoncé par une nuée de tweets affirmant, entre deux changements d'intitulés, que le septième album de Kanye West était son meilleur, The Life of Pablo a fini par sortir vers un tuyau unique, celui de la plate-forme Tidal de son ami Jay-Z, le 14 février 2016, avec grand renfort de communication à défaut d'abonnements.

Le projet, entamé dans la foulée de collaborations avec Paul McCartney (« Only One ») plus le trio avec Rihanna (« FourFive Seconds »), absences notables, devait initialement s'appeler So Help Me God, puis SWISH, puis Waves, avant l'arrivée du single « No More Parties in L.A. », sans doute le meilleur « duel » de The Life of Pablo, celui avec Kendrick Lamar. Pas plus gospel que pop, le recueil de dix-huit morceaux hétéroclites co-produit par Madlib part dans de multiples directions qu'il est difficile de résumer.

Néanmoins, au milieu de collaborations en nombre parmi lesquelles figurent celles de Kirk Franklin sur « Ultralight Beam », The Weeknd sur « FML » (avec pour surprise de taille un sample du groupe de post-punk Section 25) et Young Thug sur « Highlights », cet étalage panoramique ne manque pas d'idées. S'il n'est pas toujours à la hauteur de la réputation de son auteur, notamment sur la charge « Famous » envers Taylor Swift ou « Waves », en présence de Chris Brown, l'album comprend des saillies dignes de sa grandeur, à l'instar de « Real Friends » ou de « Feedback ».

À travers ses bifurcations, ses changements d'humeur, ses vociférations de forme et ses batailles d'ego entre le maître et ses prétendants, The Life of Pablo révèle une complexité insoupçonnable si l'on ne s'en tient qu'aux déclarations fantoches du rappeur suprême, se rêvant en génie tel qu'il en donne parfois l'illusion.

Comment Kanye West a renversé le hip-hop

En vingt ans, Kanye West a plusieurs fois changé le cours du rap et influencé comme très peu de ses contemporains la pop de son époque. Il a collaboré avec Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, Daft Punk ou Rihanna, relancé les carrières de Jay-Z et Common, révélé Kid Cudi ou John Legend et est une influence majeure pour des artistes tels que Childish Gambino, Drake ou The Weeknd. Retour sur la carrière d’un artiste qui reste une énigme.

Comment le reggae a conquis la pop américaine

Jamais le reggae n’avait été aussi exposé depuis Bob Marley. Depuis trois ans, les tubes des stars de la pop américaine ont pris des saveurs jamaïcaines. De Beyonce à Rihanna en passant par Drake, Ed Sheeran ou Justin Bieber, ils sont de plus en plus nombreux à avoir posé leur voix sur un morceau de dancehall, la version « club » du reggae popularisée par le légendaire producteur King Jammy au milieu des années 80 avec le Sleng Teng, le premier reggae électronique de l’histoire. Retour sur une infiltration en douceur.

Le trip hop en 10 albums

A l’aube des années 90, la vague trip hop submerge la Grande-Bretagne avec une électro influencée par la musique jamaïcaine et les beats rap. Rythmiques chloroformées et ambiances oppressantes, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba et quelques autres inventent une sorte de soul music sombre, futuriste et parfois très cinématographique. Coup de zoom en 10 albums sur un genre aux frontières floues mais à l’influence nette.
