Kanye West who was supposed to drop his album on Saturday night, has revealed that he delayed the album release to record in Africa.
While fans were anxiously awaiting the release of Yandhi, Kanye West dropped a bombshell about his 9th studio album which he said was scrapped because he’s not done recording yet. Ye who appeared on TMZ Live, said he’s heading to Africa in the next couple weeks to complete the project and wants to draw inspiration and energy from the Earth there.
Kim Kardashian also tweeted that her husband’s latest project, “Yandhi,” will drop on Nov. 23, almost a month after its initial release date Sept. 29. This will be West’s third album this year, following “Ye” and “Kids See Ghosts,” his collaboration with Kid Cudi.
The announcement comes days after West’s strange “Saturday Night Live” performance, during which he performed in a Make America Great Again hat. After the show, he delivered a politically charged rant to boos from the audience, where West discussed his support for President Donald Trump, as well as his promise to run for president in 2020.
Kanye West first teased his new album last month with a mysterious Twitter picture, depicting a CD similar to the design of 2013’s “Yeezus,” albeit with a different colored strip of tape on the cover. West also accompanied the post with word “Yandhi” and the initial release date, set to coincide with his “SNL” performance.
