Self proclaimed god and creative genius, Kanye West, took to his Twitter page yesterday to drop yet another major announcement: one of many in recent weeks… and this time it isn’t fashion related. Mr. West’s seventh studio album has been titled So Help Me God, with Ye turning to the big man upstairs to help him catch a break. The announcement was also accompanied by the album’s artwork, which seems to be some sort of post-modern religious symbol, possibly a reference to a 13th century monastic symbol depicting the Virgin Mary, or just a rip-off/nod to of Washington-based metal band Christian Mistress.
The announcement follows countless media appearances and surprise performances in the past month from Ye and, having recently debuted three potential tracks off the album already, (in the form of ‘Wolves – feat. Sia and Vic Mensa’, ‘All Day’ – at the Brit Awards and ‘Only One’), there is no denying that we are officially in #YEEZYSEASON and an album is imminent.
Screenshots of a potential tracklist have also surfaced and are currently circling the internet. If the images are indeed accurate, So Help Me God will be 12 tracks long and is set to feature Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Vic Mensa, Young Thug, Paul McCartney, Sia, Pusha T, Meechy Darko, Spooky Black and North West.
As of yet there are no further details on a release date for So Help Me God, but with the trend artists dropping their albums unannounced as of late, there is no doubt Ye will follow suit, so expect to see his new album drop any day now.
