Rapper Kanye West’s new album Donda came in with a lower score than animated farm animal Peppa Pig’s latest release
The controversial rapper released his new album Donda this week, but incredibly the acclaimed music artist lost out in the score charts to children’s cartoon character Peppa.
The animated farm animal’s new album Peppa’s Adventures: The Album earned a commendable 6.5 out of 10 score from Pitchfork.
But Kayne’s latest offering has been widely slammed by the music press and he only received a score of 6 out of 10 from Pitchfork.
And just to run salt into an embarrassing – and bizarre wound – Peppa mocked the awarded-winning hip-hop star with a sarcastic tweet from her official social media account.
“Peppa didn’t need to host listening parties in Mercedes-Benz Stadium to get that .5,” teased Peppa.
Kayne famously organised several grand listening parties in the US in Atlanta and Chicago so his army of fans could have a sneaky listen to his record prior to its release.
But thus far the response to the album has been lukewarm and some critics have branded it a flop which is “unimaginative”, “sketchy” and a staggering “27-track mess”.
Kanye’s tenth studio album has been delayed on numerous occasions prior to its release, but hardly surprising given his ongoing high-profile divorce with reality TV queen Kim Kardashian.
The complicated A-list star has also spoken openly about his battles with bipolar disorder and is never shy of using his celebrity spotlight to endorse some of his controversial views.
And just as though you though the criticism might be getting tiresome to take, cartoon character Peppa has jokingly poked fun at the 44-year-old, dad of four.
However, all joking aside, Kayne remains one of the world’s best-selling music artists with more than 160 million records sold across the globe.
He has also won 22 Grammy Awards, making him the most awarded artist of all time.
And with countless other awards to his name during a stellar career, it is unlikely Kanye will be too upset with Peppa’s cheeky dig.
Regardless, the hitmaker has other pressing matters on his mind as rumours swirl that he is keen to rekindle his romance with Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s star Kim.
However, the latest developments come during a cheat storm regarding the couple.
Kayne allegedly cheated on Kim after the couple welcomed their first two children, North and Saint, according to a bombshell report.
The rapper is said to have admitted his alleged infidelity in his song Hurricane, which features on his new album
