Ye! 3 Things We Know About Kanye West's New Album
As he promised, Kanye West is releasing his new album on June 1, following a public listening session that took place in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The event was also live-streamed to the rest of the world via the WAV app.
Ye is yet to be available on the regular platforms we usually lay ambush at but here are few things we know so far about the new album.
1. It will not be exclusive to Tidal
You all may have been misled by an image on Twitter claiming an exclusive listen on the Station head app, Tidal.
The company has confirmed that Ye will be released on other streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify.
2. Guest features are top class
While we wait for the album to surface on digital streaming platforms, while we wait for this and that....we know the guests on the album are top class.
The guests include Ty Dolla Sign, Jeremih, Kid Cudi, and 070 Shake, Young Thug, Charlie Wilson, and Nicki Minaj.
3. A guest was shocked to be on the album
One of the guests on Ye is Tame Impala frontman, Kevin Parker. But the gist is that he never saw this coming.
Just like the rest of us, Parker was listening to a livestream of the listening session when he heard his work on it, to which he reportedly exclaimed: "Holy s**t!"
"I had this weird premonition of this exact scenario," he told Australian radio station triple J.
West had reportedly asked him to send along any beats he was working on, so he passed over a production that sampled 1960s band Vanilla Fudge and their track "You Keep Me Hangin' On".
When West failed to respond, Parker assumed his offering hadn't been accepted.
But his effort made it to the second to last track, which features Kid Cudi rapping over a guitar line and apparently uses "bits" of Parker's original effort.
