Ye, also known as Kanye West, has had fans waiting on his complete album Donda 2 since late August of last year. Just this past Wednesday May 25, 2022, the streaming service Hulu aired the highly fan-desired documentary entitled Look at Me about the late and very much missed XXXTentacion’s life with answers to still looming questions about the young rapper. On Friday night, at midnight EDT and Thursday evening at 9PM PDT, Ye dropped the single ‘True Love’ featuring XXXTentacion via Columbia Records, and the anticipation wasn’t very high.
The song is featured on both the albums Donda 2 and Look at Me: The Album by XXXTentacion that was also released at midnight.
When the young rapper passed away at the age of 20 years old, Kayne tweeted:” rest in peace 🙏🙏🙏 I never told you how much you inspired me when you were here thank you for existing “. Fans begged for a collaboration between the two rappers, and they received their wish with songs like ‘One Minute’ form XXXTentacion album Skins, that was released after his death. And the recently released ‘Selfish‘ on Ye’s Donda 2 album via his Stem player.
Here are some fan tweets leading up to midnight:

@xxxtentacion and yes true love is releasing in 45 minutes stream it!— Szlace WANTS off the rip (@solacewrld) May 27, 2022
If you don’t like @xxxtentacion music or you think it’s weird…it’s because it wasn’t made for you. Only his REAL OG fans understand exactly what I’m talking about. That man has saved lives including mine… #LLJAH #LLXXX— YannaDoll (@Xxx_Ayanna_xxX) May 27, 2022
XXXTentacion, whose name is Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy was born on January 23, 1998 and was killed on June 18, 2018. Since his documentary has aired on Hulu, fans have expressed their sadness and always present love and support, but not much buzz about his new album and song with Ye. But on into the morning hours fans came out in full support.
TRUEEEEE LOVE 💔 @xxxtentacion— Yung Hudadoer (@Madvillainnnnnn) May 27, 2022
I can’t even listen to it— Matt & the big steppers (@slipperyslocs) May 27, 2022
Still good but it had so much wasted potential. Removing those first few lines and not adding a second verse was a major missed opportunity.— Dude (@YeetUKs) May 27, 2022
This version of true love gives me hope ye is gonna finish Donda 2May 27, 2022
“True love” was one of the only few decent tracks on the og Donda 2 album. How did they ruin that track as well😭— ❄ (@chethan_nayak_) May 27, 2022
Listened to True Love like 50x already. Even the dog asking if everything’s ok— 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐝 ♛ (@LordDrewZavala) May 27, 2022
True Love is a beautiful song man. Hearing Kanye talking about himself fighting to see his kids and X on the hook that Kanye uses beautifully illustrating how he felt Kim was gonna be his forever lover, his true love but there’s no hard feelings. Loved ithttps://t.co/ur6dZxm7uq— Jay Virgos (@The_Source_Plug) May 27, 2022
True Love is great, sounds awesome and I love Ye’s verse. Just wish it was longer and has another verse tbh.— Matt 🏄♂️ (stl blues fan) (@CFC_BaldKante) May 27, 2022

Idk why the first part of Ye’s verse isn’t on x version of true love. The beginning of that verse is my favorite part.— J R (@wbjro) May 27, 2022
True love shouldn’t be this complicated https://t.co/nNV5zeVhM0— Crown Prince (@Twinsena) May 27, 2022
