Kanye West, now legally known as Ye, has announced his return to the music scene with a new joint album titled “Vultures,” featuring fellow rapper Ty Dolla $ign. The announcement came during a club appearance where Ye shared that the album is set to be released on December 15, marking his first major musical project after a series of controversies.

Return to Music

After a hiatus from the music scene, Kanye West is making a comeback with “Vultures,” signaling his return to the industry. The joint album with Ty Dolla $ign is highly anticipated by fans, marking a significant moment in Ye’s musical journey.

Controversial Title Track Debut

During a surprise performance in Dubai, Ye debuted the title track from “Vultures,” which immediately stirred controversy. The lyrics included a line where Ye rapped, “How am I antisemitic? I just f***** a Jewish b****.” This follows past controversies that led to Adidas ending its partnership with Ye due to “unacceptable, hateful, and dangerous” comments about Jewish people.

Ty Dolla $ign’s Announcement

Ty Dolla $ign, the collaborator on the joint album, also shared that a listening party for “Vultures” would be held on December 12 in Miami. The announcement builds excitement among fans, offering an early glimpse into the musical collaboration.

Tracklist Teasers

Last week, Ty Dolla $ign provided a sneak peek into the album by sharing a tracklist on Instagram. Song titles such as “Lifestyle,” “Worship,” “Beg Forgiveness,” and “Drunk” were revealed, giving fans a taste of what to expect from “Vultures.”

Rumored Guest Artists

Rumors suggest that the album might feature guest appearances by artists like Future and Playboi Carti. Additionally, there are speculations about potential samples from the Backstreet Boys and singer Leon Bridges, adding an extra layer of anticipation.

Ye’s History of Album Delays

Kanye West has a track record of announcing albums and facing delays in their release. Albums like “God’s Country” and “Donda: With Child,” announced in 2020, are yet to be released. The release of “Donda” in 2021 also faced delays, reflecting Ye’s tendency to challenge conventional release schedules.

The release of “Vultures” has seen its share of delays, initially postponed from a “multi-stadium listening event” scheduled for November 3, 2023. Despite past delays, fans remain eager for the album’s release and the potential impact it could have on the music scene.
