Did Kanye West just tell us when his new album drops?
After going silent on Twitter in November of last year, the rapper posted a mysterious message on Thursday — just two words to his nine million followers: “June Eighteen.”
Yeezy’s been holed up in Paris for most of this year working on new material. He’s also confirmed as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live’s season finale on May 18 where he will debut his new work. And June 18 is a Tuesday, the day of the week that record companies put out their new releases. The new material would be Kanye’ first album in three years. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was released back in 2010.
Or is it the due date for his baby with Kim Kardashian? While she’s said she’s due in July, maybe he’s giving us a more specific clue as to when the child of Kimye is due to arrive?
Only time – or Kanye – will tell.
