"The artwork was pictures that we all agreed on", Pusha-T told Angie Martinez in an interview on Power 105 yesterday.

Pusha T added that West had to pay $85,000 to license the photo to be used on Daytona.

'1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID, ' Pusha told Power 105.1 of the call he received from the 40-year-old Gold Digger rapper.

"He changed my artwork last night at 1 am". And I like this other artwork. I'ma pay for that.' according to Pusha.

The album cover image depicts Houston's bathroom in her Atlanta home.

Everything was ready to go, but Pusha has revealed Kanye had a last-minute change of mind about the artwork and made him aware of it at 1am on Thursday morning, just a day before the album was due to drop.

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. Who's worse?

"I feel like the cover represents an organised chaos. Looking at that cover, I'm sure whoever frequents that bathroom or area knew whatever they wanted to find and knew where it was".

Houston died at age 48 in 2012, accidentally drowning in a bathtub with additional complications of heart disease and cocaine use. Adams wrote West an open letter urging the rapper not to use the photo.

Another, David Leon Morgan, tweeted: "The people in charge of Whitney Houston's estate are trash for even considering licensing this".

Kanye West performs onstage at the Power 106 Powerhouse show at Honda Center on June 3, 2016 in Anaheim, Calif. "She literally had no one she could trust around her. People who love you wouldn't do something like this".
