The rapper, who covers the August issue of GQ, reveals in an interview with the magazine that the follow-up to 2013's 'Yeezus' was initially planned to be released in June.
Kanye West's new album and music may come out soon. The rapper, who graced the cover of GQ's August issue, says in an interview with the magazine that he hopes to release his highly-anticipated new LP "most likely in September."
"I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September," he explains. However, he doesn't seem really sure about the release date.
"I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When [Beyonce Knowles] was working on her last album, she took a while," he continues. West then reveals that he initially planned to put out the new record in June, but he had to work on his collaboration with Adidas and wanted to be with his daughter North West.
In the interview, West also shares some info regarding his new songs, saying that his new single will be titled "All Day". "Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called 'All Day', that usually [Jay-Z] would say, but Jay's not on there," he says. "So I say, 'All day, n***a, it's Ye, n***a. Shopping for the winter, it's just May, n***a. Ball so hard, man, this shit cray, n***a. You ain't getting money unless you got eight figures.' "
"This song is a song that can be in the club like 'Don't Like' or 'N***as in Paris'," Kim Kardashian's husband continues.
West's new studio effort, which is currently still untitled, will serve as the follow-up to his 2013 chart-topper "Yeezus". Speaking of what the record means to him, he says, " 'Yeezus' was extremely purposeful. And what came from 'Yeezus': Paparazzi are nicer to me. The entire fashion industry is nicer to me. I do have a collaboration coming out. Young designers that would go and work at a house now look and say, 'Wow, maybe we could potentially work at Donda. Maybe we could work for Kanye. Maybe that's a real thing.' "
