It’s titled simply, ye.
The album spans seven tracks and includes guests appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla Sign, Jeremih, Charlie Wilson, and 070 Shake.
Kanye premiered the album during a listening event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on Thursday night. Subscribers of Apple Music and Spotify can now stream it in full below.
The album’s artwork features a photograph of Wyoming mountains along with the text, “I hate being Bi-Polar. it’s awesome.” According to Kim-Kardashian West, Kanye took the photograph on his iPhone on the way to the listening party.
ye follows 2016’s The Life of Pablo. It’s also the second in a series of five Kanye-produced albums that began last week with Pusha-T’s DAYTONA and continues next week Kanye and Kid Cudi’s collaborative album, Kids See Ghosts. New solo albums from Nas and Teyana Taylor follow on June 15th and 22nd, respectively.
Kenyan songstress Serro is a mellow voiced powerhouse and is excited to release the stunning music video for her latest single, “Okello”.
Using earthy but stunning visuals, the music video stays true to the catchy and soothing melody reminiscent of Mbilia Bel and the Afro-touch synonymous with Serro.
Shot in the outskirts of Nairobi, the first scene places the viewer in a quaint rural backdrop. The narrative captures the restlessness between a couple and the consequences of pursuing them.
“For me, this song is about having the will to be free in life. And relationships are what life is all about. Johnson is amazing in how he captured the picture in my head when writing and recording it,” says the “Rongai” songstress.
Serro’s nostalgia and her sense of longing to return home are palpable with every lyric. Named after a river, Serro mirrors this fact with her voice meandering beautifully through heavenly harmonies and soft, soaring coos.
