Kanye West bought photo of Whitney Houston's bathroom for Pusha T album

The snap, which was taken in 2006 by a member of Houston's family, shows drug paraphernalia scattered about the place as the singer battled with addiction.

A day earlier, Pusha T appeared on The Angie Martinez Show to promote the new album and said the cover art was a last-minute change by West.

The bars in this song proudly proclaim the success Pusha T has managed to achieve in his career thus far.

DAYTONA also features the guest talents of Rick Ross as well as Kanye West.

During an interview with Angie Martinez (via outcome of Sound) on Wednesday night, Pusha T revealed West scrapped the artwork for Pusha's forthcoming album, "Daytona", and replaced it with a grim image of what he claims is the late singer's bathroom. Pusha says the cover represents "organized chaos" and fits with the album's vibe, but that West also told him to change the album artwork at the last minute because "he wasn't feeling it". "To me, the prison reform thing is so dear and near to me, right?" I said "Hey, I don't want to pay for that and I wasn't even going to ask you to pay for that".

Representatives for Houston's estate did not immediately return a request for comment.

Daytona, originally titled King Push, was expected to follow King Push - Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, released in December 2015, but was delayed.

"Seven, you know, definitely the God number", he said. "I'm really proud of what we put together", West tweeted on Tuesday.

Upcoming releases from the G.O.O.D. music label - a solo effort from West, his collaborative project with Kid Cudi and Teyana Taylor's album - are all set for release in June. "I really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive response that we've been receiving".
