Kanye West Drops Official Version of ‘Champions’ from ‘Cruel Winter’ Compilation
Kanye West dropped the much-anticipated official version of the posse track, "Champions" this weekend. The song, which features Gucci Mane, Desiigner, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, Quavo, Travis Scott and 2 Chainz, was made available on Tidal and Apple Music.
The song will be featured on Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Winter, a follow-up to 2012's Cruel Summer. No official date has been given for Cruel Winter yet but fans are hopeful after this single that it will make an appearance sometime later this year.
Ye debuted the song on Big Boy's 92.3 radio show last week and the web went wild. Kanye promised fans that he would be dropping two more albums before 2016 ends; a presumed solo project tentatively titled TurboGrafX 16 has been mentioned for months and now this anticipated release of Cruel Winter.
Kanye also just premiered the official trailer for his Only One video game at Sony’s E3 2016 press event in Los Angeles on Monday (June 12) and it features an animated version of Kanye’s late mother Donda West riding on the back of a winged white horse that surges through the clouds towards heaven. Donda then emerges with grandiose angel’s wings amongst the clouds.
Say what you will, but Yeezy has been keeping busy thus far in 2016.
