Hip-Hop superstar Kanye West has finally come forward to reveal details about his highly anticipated upcoming album, 808s & Heartbreak.
With his new R&B tinged single Ã¢â‚¬Å“Love LockdownÃ¢â‚¬Â climbing up the charts and reaching No. 3 on iTunesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Top Songs countdown, Ye took the time to write in his renowned blog showing his appreciation to fans.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HEY THANX EVERYONE,Ã¢â‚¬Â the headline reads. Ã¢â‚¬Å“PRETTY DOPE FOR THE FIRST DAY!!!Ã¢â‚¬Â
In addition to embracing his fan base for their purchases of the track, Ye also wrote about his work sessions schedule and officially confirmed his fourth albumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s title.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I just woke up from a quick studio napÃ¢â‚¬Â¦IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been workinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ on 808s & Heartbreak about 16 hrs a day and Superman passed out for a little bit,Ã¢â‚¬Â he explained. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m in hawaii but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still on NY time so I wake up mad early, do some business, blog, jog for an hour, play ball, eat and then hit the stu by noon.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Prior to landing in Hawaii, Ye was involved in an altercation with paparazzi at CaliforniaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s LAX airport last week (September 11) before being arrested and later released on $20,000 bail. While across the waters, the multi-platinum selling rapper hinted at an upcoming video for his new single.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“While approving the final cut for the Ã¢â‚¬ËœLove LockdownÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ vid, I marvel at the fact that it was written less than 3 weeks ago,Ã¢â‚¬Â he wrote. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m very excited about the everythingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â
After receiving a slight mocking by former SoundScan competitor 50 Cent of his new song, Ye had this to say, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I guarantee this will be 50Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s favorite album of mine. This will be gangsterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s album of the year.Ã¢â‚¬Â
As of now, there is no official release date for 808s & Heartbreak.
