Kanye West recently confirmed what many fans had been hoping for—a collab album with Drake. Rumors of the album first started swirling around the time Ye released “Wolves” with Sia and Vic Mensa, as that was actually supposed to be the title of their album.
Things cooled off for awhile, until Drake brought West out at OVO Fest to perform “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” and the crowd was asked “Is y’all ready for this album? Now, I’m not talking about Pablo. I wasn’t talking about Views. I wanna ask y’all right now, y’all ready for this album?,” with Kanye pointing at Drake before delivering a wild performance of the standout hit.
A month removed from OVO fest, and we have confirmation: the album is one it’s way. In a recent interview with Vogue, Kanye mentioned, “We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio. We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”
While he declined to give a release date, fans can more than likely expect it sooner than later.
Personally, I feel pretty indifferent about the album. While it would undoubtedly cause a rip in the space-time continuum (I mean, probably), I honestly don’t see their styles meshing too well. Drake definitely does a good job of being a chameleon and molding to the favored sound of his featured guests, but I can’t see it really given what Kanye has been making sonically as of late.
That being said, I could very well be completely wrong and will love this album—I’d definitely enjoy the surprise, but as of right now I’m skeptical.
