Kanye West apparently threw down $85k for a photo of Whitney Houston‘s drug-ridden hotel bathroom that’ll now be the cover of Pusha T‘s new album, “Daytona.”

Pusha T told Angie Martinez in an interview Wednesday that his original album art was canned at the last minute in favor of a photo West licensed for the obscene amount of money. Pusha said that Ye put his own cash down on it too since they’d already agreed on something else previously — telling Push, “This is what people need to see to go along with this music.”

“Daytona” drops Friday, but the artwork was released Thursday.

As for the final cover image … it’s a photo of Whitney’s hotel bathroom at the Beverly Hilton, taken after she was found dead in the bathtub in 2006. The room was littered with paraphernalia like a crack-smoking pipe, spoons, white powder, and booze — which can all be seen in the photo. Ya just gotta look closely.
