Kanye West Stirs Album Speculation with ‘June 18’ Tweet

Kanye West

Kanye West has the Internet abuzz after tweeting what appears to be a release date for his album.

“June Eighteen,” tweeted the G.O.O.D. Music chief on Thursday morning. He also deleted all of his previous tweets.

He didn’t provide any more information, but there is speculation that his sixth solo album will arrive that day. The date falls on a Tuesday when albums are typically released in the U.S. However, Kanye’s label Def Jam has not confirmed anything.

All signs are pointing towards new music. The hip-hop mogul has been in Paris recording the follow-up to his 2010 solo album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He will also perform on the May 18 season finale of “SNL.”

During a trip to New York last month, the father-to-be stopped by his label to play music. Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg claims the album is done and has a “dark” tone. “Everyone at the label listened to the album and loved it,” he said. “I heard it’s dark, but really good.”

Details surrounding his recording sessions remain under wraps, but he has been in the studio with Daft Punk, who programmed drums for the project. “It was very raw: he was rapping—kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas Bangalter of the French duo told Rolling Stone. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck.”

June is shaping up to be a big month for Kanye. His girlfriend Kim Kardashian is also expected to give birth to their first child.

June 18

    More like his baby is due, I know kanye don’t give a fuck about record sales anymore but I cant imagine him pulling a JT and just give away his album. I think he will wait til late summer/early fall. There is a small chance this is the release date. I cant wait for new kanye doe :) Best Artist Alive!

    Everybody is motherfucking stupid as fuck to think that’s gonna be the album coming. Probaly it’s just gon be the first single. But still that’s gon be some amazing shit

    Nick Reply:

    @EVERYBODY HATES HATERS, WHY would it be the first single if he’s the musical guest for SNL in 2 weeks?? What the fuck is he gonna perform on SNL then? No one goes onto SNL to perform classic songs. The only musical guests you see are people who are gearing up to release a new album or just released a new album. You’re the one who is motherfucking stupid.

    I’m hoping it is new music from Kanye West. Kanye West is one of the best music artists in the whole entire music industry. MBDTF was a great album, so hopefully, Kanye West’s next album will be great too.

    I think that june 18th date is the drop of his first single. Ain’t no way on God’s green earth that he could drop an album in a little over a month.
