Daft Punk and Chief Keef are among musicians who collaborate with the 'Stronger' rapper for his upcoming album.
Kanye West threw a listening party at Milk Studios in New York City on Monday night, June 10. Not only did he play his entire new album, "Yeezus", at the event, but he also revealed several collaborators who worked with him on the album that will arrive on June 18.
During the event that was attended by Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, West confirmed that Chief Keef and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon were appearing together on a song entitled "Can't Handle My Liquor". Meanwhile, Daft Punk worked with West on three or four songs. Rick Rubin served as an executive producer for the follow-up to West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy".
So far, West has debuted five new songs off the forthcoming album, "New Slaves" (featuring Frank Ocean), "Black Skinhead" (composed by Daft Punk), "I Am a God", "On Site" and "Send It Up".
West didn't only work with musicians for his new album. He also worked with Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend, Scott Disick, and Kim Kardashian's friend, Jonathan Cheban, to promote the album. The three were seen filming an "American Psycho"- themed video in Brooklyn.
"Kanye spent the weekend shooting an American Psycho-inspired video in Brooklyn," an insider confirmed the news to In Touch. "Kanye wants the video to go viral and drum up more publicity for his album. Kanye is definitely on edge and nervous about how this album will sell. He won't promote it the normal way, and he wants to create buzz with all these weird, secret demonstrations."
The video will reportedly be released later this week.
