One of the album’s distinct characteristics has always been it’s use of live instrumentation and large orchestras. In fact, at one point, the album was delayed two weeks because Kanye and Brion had to wait to rent a harpsichord to play on one song. While recording “Celebration” with a 20 piece band, the musicians reportedly found it difficult to concentrate while Kanye spit his humorous lyrics about grabbing asses and having a "well-endowed" son.
