Kanye West Changes Album Name to ‘Swish’
The "Only One" singer and rapper revealed the news on Twitter on Sunday afternoon (May 3), which you can see below.
Kanye initially titled the LP, So Help Me God, which he revealed on March 1 via Twitter. In the announcement, he included an image of the album art that depicted a diamond pattern with a lower-case “m” at the points. As people started wonder what the visual meant, Reddit came up with a few theories, which included the 13th century monastic symbol for the Virgin Mary.
This is also not the first time the rapper has changed the title of an album. His 2010 LP, My Beautifully Dark Twisted Fantasy, was originally named Good Ass Job. And he did warn fans that he could switch up the title again. So we probably shouldn't get too attached to this one.
Despite this, there are a few things we do know about Kanye West's forthcoming album. It will include "Wolves," "Only One" and "All Day." He also dropped "Awesome," a track professing his love for wifey Kim Kardashian, but there is no confirmation that this will be making it on the record. And in an interview with Rolling Stone, he said that the album was 80 percent done as of March. He also didn't intend to reveal a release date.
Aside from his own album, Kanye has also been working with some other people in the studio. Of course, there's his contribution to Rihanna's "FourFiveSeconds." Then he is also reportedly working with Justin Bieber on his next more "grown-up" album. And while it hasn't actually happened, Taylor Swift hinted that they have discussed collaboration but didn't set anything in stone as she is still promoting 1989.
