Kanye West Made a Huge Change to SWISH

Yeezy's shaking things up right before his album drops.

Published January 26, 2016

As Kanye West puts the final touches on his hugely-anticipated album, a few things are bound to change. But Yeezy isn't just checking for typos in the liner notes for SWISH. Despite the fact that the album is set to drop in just two weeks, the rap icon went ahead and changed its name. Again.

So, the album formerly known as SWISH (and before that, So Help Me God) is now...Waves. Yeezy announced the news on Twitter:

It's not clear what inspired the sudden change — a trip to the beach with his kids, perhaps? — but the name isn't all that's different. A photograph of the hand-written track listing has been amended to suggest that A$AP Rocky, The-Dream and Swizz Beatz are involved:

One thing that hasn't changed is Yeezy's confidence in his latest work.

Barring any further delays, we'll finally be able to judge for ourselves in just a couple of weeks. The Yeezy hype machine has been on overdrive lately in anticipation of the new record. Catch up with all the latest developments with BET Breaks, below:
