Update 2: Kanye just revealed the release date of Swish on Twitter: February 11, 2016. Prepare accordingly.

Update: Kanye’s shared two new songs, “Real Friends” and “No More Parties in LA” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Stream them on his website now.


New Kanye West music may be coming in weekly installments, according to the person who sleeps next to him at night.

Early Friday morning (January 8), Kanye’s wife/celebrated selfie guru Kim Kardashian hinted that her husband would release a song — presumably, another from his upcoming Swish album. And judging by her #EveryFriday hashtag, it’ll happen on every New Music Friday for the foreseeable future.

Given that Kim was the propulsive force behind promo for “Facts,” the new song Kanye surprised fans with on New Year’s Eve, it’s likely that this is an equally-reliable announcement. With 38 million Twitter followers, she’s got more reach than most PR firms, and isn’t one’s spouse supposed to be their biggest hype man?

Kanye hasn’t announced a new song on his own Twitter as of yet, though he did move to clear up any misinterpretations of a certain “Facts” lyric thought to be a jab at basketball star LeBron James: “Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves. Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away”. The rapper-producer tweeted this morning, “The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, Lebron is fam bottom line.” So there you have it, LeBron stans.
