It seems to be the unanimous feeling that everyone is sick and tired of hearing about how Kanye and Kim are having a kid. We get it. Enough! So it’s with great pride today that we can actually report on a Kanye story that isn’t about the damn kid…or even some sort of Kanye outburst. It’s a music story. Thank god.
The folks over at the New York Post have said that Kanye, who has been hiding out in France since Fashion Week in February working on a new album, is returning to the U.S. next month and is gearing up to perform on SNL on May 18.
It’s great to see Kanye perform on SNL, but why is this extra special you ask? Well, it means that Kanye will definitely be performing new material from his upcoming album on the show and that the album will most likely be dropping sooner than expected.
Originally the much talked about new album was speculated to be out at some point this summer. But with a return to the US and the TV appearance scheduled, ‘Ye could drop his first new single in a matter of weeks. And that would make some people happy.
The SNL appearance also has potential for Kanye to get a revenge slag-off on Justin Timberlake after JT’s much talked about rip on Kanye when he hosted last month.
Stay tuned everyone.
