Kanye West has confirmed that he’s making an album with Drake.
In an interview with Vogue ahead of his Season 4 fashion show, West finally addressed the rumors of the hip-hop heavyweights’ collaboration. “We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio,” he said. “We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”
The news of a collaborative album between West and Drake comes after weeks of speculation, which included West teasing such a possibility in early August during an appearance in Toronto for OVO Fest.
While West told Vogue that no release date is set, where the album will be released should be interesting. West’s The Life of Pablo was a Tidal exclusive and Drake’s Views was released exclusively on Apple Music. In July, West tweeted that the battle between the two streaming companies was “f—ing up the music game.
Speculation was also flying last week about a mysterious countdown clock alluding to a possible Drake and Rihanna album, but EW reported that those rumors weren’t true.
