kanye changes album name, reveals collaborators, drops first yeezy season 3 preview
'Swish,' 'Waves,' -- whatever you wanna call it, Yeezy insists 'This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.'
The news keeps coming thick and fast from Kanye West. West revealed a track list for Swish on Monday (amidst rumors that he was cheating on Adidas with Vans), and the very next day, there were listings for cinema screenings around the world. These screenings teased that his full album will stream live at Madison Square Garden on February 11. Since that date is during New York Fashion Week, the premiere is expected to be accompanied by a Yeezy Season 3 show.
Now, in a flurry of tweets, 'Ye has announced that the album name has switched from Swish to Waves. There's also a new track added to the list, "Ultra Light Beam," and the songs have been divided into three "acts." West's tracklist notepad -- which originally had one tag, "Kylie was here" -- has now been covered in collaborator names, from A$AP Rocky to Swizz Beatz, The-Dream and Vicious, to Kim K and Minister Bentley. Another tweet pays respect to Max B and Uptown Records boss Andre Harrel, as well as Puff Daddy, 50 Cent, Q-Tip and Jay Z.
Having previously claimed that the record is "the best album of all time," he's now saying, "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life." "I got this record n*ggas can't even play before 2 am," West added.
On top of it all, West also posted a picture of Kim in Yeezy Season 3: a black furry jacket worn with what look like cycling shorts and a zip up Adidas sweat top. Does that put the Vans rumors to bed, or had Kim just got in from a jog?
