Kanye West has teased fans with some much-awaited details of his new album, which he has revealed will be released ‘most likely in September’.
During his cover story interview with GQ magazine, West said he takes into consideration how Beyoncé released her last record.
“When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while,” he says.
“I had these beautiful songs, they were just more songs. They weren’t saying, ‘Okay, tuck your whole summer in.’ They were just saying, ‘Hey, I’m a great musician, I make these beautiful songs, and they have all this meaning, and nobody can make anything that means this much.'”
While the rapper admits he has also taken a leaf out of Jay-Z’s book when it comes to his new single.
“I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called “All Day,” that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there. So I say ‘All day, ni–a, it’s Ye, ni–a. Shopping for the winter, it’s just May, ni–a. Ball so hard, man, this shit cray, ni–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 ‘Ni–as in Paris,'” he says of “All Day.”
