Kanye West Premieres Lead Single From ‘Cruel Winter’

Kanye has debuted the untitled first track from upcoming GOOD Music collab album.

Yeezy has made GOOD on his promise to release a follow up to 2012’s ‘Cruel Summer’, a collaborative album between all the artists signed to his record label, GOOD Music.

Kanye West sat down with Big Boy on L.A.’s 92.3 this morning to deliver the first taste of the forthcoming record, ‘Cruel Winter’, with the as-of-now-untitled first single.

The track features seven other artists (!!) – Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Desiigner, Quavo, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott and Yo Gotti – and although Ye’s verse was previewed earlier this week, the track is the first time we’ve got to hear the superstar collaborative force behind his next project. It’s a simple trap beat with some typically passable bars from all involved, but it doesn’t have anywhere near the immediacy of tracks like “Clique” from ‘Cruel Summer’.

In true Kanye style, he claims the song is still unfinished and that it may be mixed again before release, and of course, no word on when that release is expected to occur.

This comes off the back of news that West will feature on Mary J Blige’s forthcoming album.

As with all things Kanye, ‘Cruel Winter’ has the potential to be completely brilliant or entirely messy and will most likely end up somehow being both.
