Kanye West is working on the follow up to his highly controversial Yeezus album, which was given critical acclaim by industry insiders but not so well received by fans when it was released last June.

Ever since Kanye West announced that he was postponing the Australian dates of his ‘Yeezus tour’ to finish up his new album Yeezy fans, like myself, have been anticipating the new album.

Well West, who is featured on the cover of the new GQ Magazine, revealed the title of his new single and what to expect from it.
MTV has taken a rather unconventional route in announcing the nominees for the 2014 Video Music Awards (VMAs). They have various artists making the announcements on their Snapchat story.
