Kanye West is trying to keep his fans happy in the time leading up to the release of his next album, currently slated for a mid-November release. Ye announced via Twitter yesterday (August 22) that he’ll be releasing new material every week until Christmas.
“I know yall need the music so I’m dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc…” Yeezy wrote on his page Sunday morning. “I’m calling it good Fridays,” he continued. “Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now. It’s about the fans. No more holding back. That’s why I dropped ["See Me Now"]…It wasn’t about me it was about the Summer the BBQs etc…”
The announcement comes on the heels of the producer/rapper releasing a new track each of the last two weeks. In addition to the Beyonce and Charlie Wilson-assisted “See Me Now” which dropped August 11, Kanye released the remix to “Power” with the help of Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz late last week [Listen here].
