If you’re working on an album that’s going to end up being number one in the Billboard charts on your iPhone, it’s probably sensible to at the very least back it up to the cloud.

It seems Kanye didn’t bother however, as Kim Kardashian-West explained on Kocktails With Khloe (I think that’s the show name? It could be a segment on KUWTK, I really don’t know):

Dinner guests Khloe, John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen were obviously all like “oh my gyyyyaaaaaddd”, “no waaaaay”.
