West says in a new radio interview he wanted to get peoples' opinions.
West's album drops Feb. 11 and will premiere at Madison Square Garden.
We saw this coming.Receipts. Mr. West realized the error in his ways. He apologized to Wiz Khalifa for his Twitter meltdown then took back his claim Waves is THE best album of all time, recognizing iconic artists who paved the way to help him achieve his dreams. By the way, Waves is no longer the album title name. "We don’t have a name yet," he said in an interview with Boy Boy on L.A.'s 92.3 radio station Thursday morning (Feb. 4). Other titles he's playing around with thanks to wife Kim Kardashian's Twitter poll included So Help Me God and the original Swish. "I wanted to get people's opinions on how they felt." West describes his new album as "ultra light beams," which we appreciate in some odd fashion, before referencing one of the song titles that appear on one of his several handwritten track lists. "I'm trying to open up hearts, minds. I was sitting in the studio with Kirk Franklin, I said, 'This is a gospel album with a whole lotta cursing on it but it's still a gospel album and it's the gospel according to 'Ye." He also tries justifying his rant aimed at Khalifa. "My brother Malik Yusef got us on the phone. He's very close to Wiz, he's also very close to me," he said. "We chopped it up, squashed it. For people who felt a way about the kids comment, I didn’t mean it in a harmful way. I just saw my wife’s initial and reacted, cause that’s my family."
