Kanye West Changes His Album Title at the Last Minute
By Meredith B. Kile
Um ... someone might need to check in with Kanye West.
The rapper is just finishing up his highly-touted upcoming album, announcing the track list and a Madison Square Garden debut earlier this week. But on Tuesday, Yeezy made a huge last-minute change, announcing on Twitter that he had changed the title of the album from Swish to Waves.
“New album title, WAVES,” the 38-year-old rapper tweeted. That’s it. That’s all. Huh?
Later, Yeezy posted a revamped version of his hand-written track list, including the new album title and an added song called "Ultra Light Beam." The notepaper scribbles also now include a message answering the "Kylie Was Here" inscription, which reads, "Kim Never Left."
For what it's worth, rock band Wavves responded to West on Twitter, joking that they would be releasing a new album called Kanye.
Earlier in the day, West was full of promises about the upcoming project, boasting on social media that, “This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.”
The rapper is set to debut the album at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11, in an event the rapper is calling “Yeezy Season 3,” echoing his previous fashion line releases. No word on whether or not there will be a name change for that event, which will also be live-streamed into theaters around the world.
