Kanye West , who had just re-released from his “True Love” collaboration with XXXTentacion, reunited with Vory in “Daylight” soon after.
On an organ-infused rhythm co-produced by Ye, Ojivolta, 88-Keys, and Evan Mast, Kentucky crooner presents his emotional melodies, while Ye shares his own heartfelt testimony.
This is the latest in a series of collaborations between the two, who previously teamed up on “Jonah,” “God Breathed,” and “No Child Left Behind” off DONDA, as well as “Lord Lift Me Up” off DONDA 2.
“Daylight” is the second release off Vory’s upcoming album, Lost Souls, which drops June 3 via Dream Chasers Records. Earlier this month, he released “Do Not Disturb” featuring Yung Bleu and NAV.

Kanye West and XXTENCATION: They were good!
After initially appearing in DONDA 2, the fan-favorite was first released on streaming platforms. Through the drums, Ye raps about his divorce (“Daddy isn’t gone, you see the light coming on”), while X hands over the haunted hook.
“True Love” plays on the final credits of X’s documentary Look At Me: XXXTentacion, which is currently airing on Hulu. He will also appear on an accompanying album, Look At Me: The Album.
XXXTentacion, who was 20 years old when he died, had previously expressed his admiration for Ye on social media.
“Kanye is my inspiration,” he tweeted in March 2014. Following X’s death in 2018, Ye gave back love.
“I never told you how much you inspired me when I was here. Thank you for existing.”
The cover art was also designed by Ye and features handwritten notes from a diary found by X’s mother.

West Loses Another Case
West just lost another case. Kanye mogul’s lawyer moves away as he continues to divorce Kim Kardashian. According to The Blast, Samantha Spector, Ye’s fourth lawyer, has prepared documents to resign as his representative.
It’s not entirely clear why Spector decided to leave the case. In the filing, Spector says there has been an “irreconcilable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship.”
For now, the case will be handled by another member of the legal team, a nonstate attorney from Pennsylvania who does not specialize in divorce.
In March, Ye told Spector, who represented Nicole Young in her high-profile divorce from Dr. Dre, that after firing her previous attorney, Chris Melcher, their relationship had “become extremely difficult with very little communication.”
