Kanye to record a David Bowie album and people are NOT happy

by

Earlier this week, Kanye West revealed his plans to release a compilation album of David Bowie covers as a tribute to the late star who passed away from cancer earlier this month. 

And while the rapper has already busy in the studio working on his own versions of classic Bowie songs such as Rebel, Rebel and Heroes, it seems that a few people are not happy. 

Make that thousands of people. 

An online petition that began online only yesterday has already raked up over 7.000 signatures at the time of writing. 

According to the Daily Star, the 38-year-old musician wants to record "straightforward covers" of the late Bowie's music.

"[The album would include] straightforward cover versions with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie's music," said a source. 

The campaign to stop the album going forward was created by Peter Piranha and is gaining significant traction online. 

"David Bowie was one of the single most important musicians of the 20th and 21st century," reads the tagline of the petition. 

"It would be a sacrilege to let it be ruined by Kanye West." 

From the sounds of things, Kanye is already in the studio working on the project and we can't imagine him changing his mind. 

Kanye is also set to release his latest album, Swish, in the next few months.
