We Are Going To Africa To Record – Kanye West On Delayed Release Of Yandhi
Kanye West was supposed to drop his ninth studio album on Saturday, September 29. Two days, three SNL performances, one tweet from Kim Kardashian-West and an appearance on TMZ Live later and Kanye’s Yandhi is pushed back to Black Friday, November 23. West admitted to Harvey Levin that he “didn’t finish” the album in time, and a member of his management staff suggested pushing the release back.
“I started incorporating sounds that you never heard before and pushing and having concepts that people don’t talk about,” West said of the project. “We have concepts talking about body-shaming and women being looked down upon for how many people that they slept with. It’s just a full Ye album and those five albums I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation and now the alien Ye is fully back in mode… We’re going to Africa in two weeks to record. I felt this energy when I was in Chicago. I felt the roots. We have to go to what is known as Africa.”
Kanye West has disclosed why his upcoming album wasn’t released last Saturday as promised.
Speaking to TMZ, the rapper said he wants to explore more sounds and he’ll be travelling to Africa (he didn’t mention the country/countries) to record.
He said that the album will be released on Black Friday – November 23rd.
