Kanye West Changes Album Title From ‘Swish’ to ‘Waves’

Third times a charm. Kanye West has changed the name of his album from Swish to Waves.

Ye dropped the news via Twitter on Tuesday night (Jan. 26). “New album title, WAVES,” read the succinct tweet.

It seems the Travi$ Scott was already in the know, though; since he tweeted an emoji of a guy riding a wave all day yesterday — a whopping 32 times to be exact.

Ten months ago, Ye announced that his seventh studio album would be titled So Help Me God but he later changed it to Swish. With two weeks left until the release date of Yeezy’s highly anticipated project, it’s uncertain what else the Chicago native will have up his sleeve.

Ye’s album, (which he’s called “album of the life”),  is set to be released on Feb. 11 along with the premiere of his latest clothing collection, Yeezy Season 3. And knowing Kanye, it will likely be a spectacle — especially considering the event will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Not much is known about the new album aside from the track list which includes the previously released songs “No More Parties in LA” featuring Kendrick Lamar and “Fade.” It seems Swizz Beatz and A$AP Rocky may have something to do with the project as well since their signature is on the legal pad that Ye wrote his track list on — Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner’s signature were also included along with many others.

Ye also tweeted a special shout out to a few notables in hip-hop including Diddy, 50 Cent, Q Tip and Jay Z. “Honor puff honor 50 honor q tip honor jay,” it read. He also gave a shoutout to rapper Max B and industry veteran Andre Harrell.
