Kanye West’s New Album Title — A Tribute To Kim Kardashian?
I’m changing my album name to SWISH

You may be going, “huh?” or “how does this relate to Kim?” Let’s back up! Kanye repeatedly used this catchphrase in March when referring to Kim’s super sexy topless photo shoot, which we see on KUWTK. Kanye gave his stamp of approval by sharing the pics of her using “SWISH” to caption each one of her!

We’re onto you, Yeezy! However, he did also say that we shouldn’t be too attached to SWISH just yet.

Kanye West’s Seventh Album — What We Know So Far
So far, SWISH includes “Only One” featuring Paul McCartney and “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa. “Only One” just happens to be all about his love and admiration for his and Kim’s daughter, North, and they even star in the music video together!
Kanye told the “The Breakfast Club” back in February that this album would be completely different from his 2013 hit, Yeezus.
“My last album was a protest of music,” he said. “This album’s just embracing the music, embracing joy, and just being of service to the people.”
Sounds like Kim fits right into that description! We can’t wait to hear more.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Kanye will keep SWISH as his album title? Will it be all about Kim? Sound off below!
