My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is the fifth studio album by American rapper and producer Kanye West. It was released on November 22, 2010, by Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records.
Following a period of public and legal controversy, West retreated to a self-imposed exile in Hawaii in 2009. There, he worked on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in a communal recording environment involving numerous contributing musicians and producers. The recording sessions featured guest appearances from: Bon Iver, Jay-Z, Pusha T, Rick Ross, Kid Cudi, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, and Raekwon, among others.
Music journalists have noted the album features a maximalist aesthetic and opulent production quality with elements of West's previous works, including soul, baroque, electro, and symphonic styles, as well as progressive rock influences. Thematically, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy explores West's status as a celebrity, consumer culture, race, and the idealism of the American Dream.
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and eventually sold over 1.3 million copies in the United States. The album was a widespread critical success and named the best of 2010 in many publications' critics polls, including the Pazz & Jop. Several professionally curated lists later ranked it among the greatest albums of all time.
