Yeezy season is
approaching upon us.
Kanye West has dominated news headlines during the first week of the new year, dropping a Nike diss track, “Facts,” late on New Year’s Eve, and being confirmed as the headliner for New York City’s Governors Ball this June. In addition to that, this morning, Kim Kardashian announced that new music would be releasing today, and hinted at Ye’s weekly new-music-on-Friday series returning, with the hashtag #EveryFriday.
Now this week’s new music is here, and as Kardashian alluded, the song is called “Real Friends,” and features Ty Dolla $ign. If you remember, last year, Ty Dolla $ign reported last year via an interview with Billboard that Kanye flew him out to Mexico to work on several collaborations, including songs with Paul McCartney and Rihanna. During the preview of Kanye’s Yeezy Season 2 collection during NYFW last year, a song called “Fade,” featuring Ty Dolla and Post Malone was premiered, and $ign was featuring in the background vocals of “Only One,” the Paul McCartney collaboration Kanye dropped on New Year’s Eve in 2014.
At the tail end of “Real Friends,” you can also hear a snippet of what will likely be the next release in the #EveryFriday series, “No More Parties In LA,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and production from Madlib.
Kanye has updated his official Soundcloud account with the official “Real Friends” and “No More Parties In LA” snippet, and you can listen to them here.
