Kanye West wasn't even familiar with Beck's "Morning Phase" before he took umbrage with the record besting Beyoncé's "Beyoncé" for Album of the Year at the Grammys earlier this month.

"Nah, I hadn't even heard it, man!" West said in an interview with Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" on Friday.

But as fate would have it, West did finally listen to "Morning Phase" thanks, in part, to Taylor Swift.

"The other day I went to dinner and sat down with Taylor Swift," West said of his meal with Swift at New York's Spotted Pig. "Ironically, they were playing the Beck album. I was like, 'Man, this is kind of good. I ain't gonna lie.'"

Continued West: "I bet you that album is really good. I'm going to listen to that album and maybe it was potentially Album of the Year."
