    Thousands sign petition to prevent Kanye West from recording a David Bowie tribute album
    JAN. 20, 2016
    Almost 5,000 people have signed a petition to stop Kanye West from recording a David Bowie tribute album.

    Earlier this week it was claimed the Yeezus rapper had been getting to work in the studio to put his own spin on classic hits like Charges, Heroes and Rebel, Rebel.

    According to the Daily Star, the 38-year-old star wants to pay tribute to the legendary performer by recording a mix of straight cover version, and some with Ye's own influence.

    A source said: "Some are straightforward cover versions with Kanye actually singing. On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie's music."



    Would you listen to Kanye's tribute album?


    But not everyone seems to be on board with the idea and now a petition has been created to get the so far unconfirmed album scrapped.

    The description of the petition, created by Peter Pirahna and addressed directly to the rapper, reads: "David Bowie was one of the single most important musicians of the 20th and 21st century, it would be a sacrilege to let it be ruined by Kanye West."

    The day-old petition already has almost 5,000 signatures.

    Wouldn't he have to get Iman's permission to record Bowie's songs? That guy who recorded Space Oddity from space only had permission to "air" that for a year. I think Bowie later gave him permission to record it for an album.

    A long-form musical form of "I was just going to send a note to..."
