Wouldn't Leave by Kanye West
Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West
In Runaway, Kanye told her to run away—in Wouldn't Leave, he realizes she wants to stay. While The Life of Pablo encapsulates Kanye West's commitment to marriage and domesticity, ye is a spiritual journey where Kanye comes to peace with himself, and part of that includes the recognition that other people in his life—mainly his wife, Kim Kardashian—love him as much as he loves himself. Chris, Travis, Jordan break it all down, from the impact of the TMZ incident on Kanye's marriage to the song's connection with Teyana Taylor's album to the sonic fusion of Kanye's various personalities.
