Kanye West Drops New Songs ‘When I See It’ and ‘Say You Will’ Remix
Kanye West may be focusing on his fashion career and a possible presidential campaign for 2020, but Yeezy isn't leaving his day one fans hanging without new music. As his highly anticipated album, Swish, is still in the creation phase, West releases two new songs, "When I See It" and "Say You Will" remix featuring Caroline Shaw.
The new tracks dropped via his SoundCloud page on Monday (Oct. 19). The first is a remix to the Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends,” which Ye produced himself. Instead of Abel Tesfaye's crooning though, the rapper replaces it with his own Auto-Tune singing.
As for the second track, Kanye's stans may find it to be a little familiar since it's a longer and more theatrical version of the opener for his 2008 album, 808s & Heartbreak. The new version features the aforementioned Shaw, who in 2013 became the youngest musician to win a Pulitzer Prize.
"Say You Will" immediately became a trending topic on Twitter upon its release. And one look on Twitter's live feed and you'll know why -- the consensus is that it's good.
"I never knew it was possible to make Say You Will even more beautiful than it was. Thank you Yeezus," tweeted one fan, while another declared that it gave him "goosebumps, twice." Others have simply called the music "amazing" or used fire emojis to express its heat.
Aside from the songs, the artwork is pretty gorgeous itself. A painted bouquet of pink and white roses dripping with pink paint is featured.
