Happy Birthday Yeezy! If you did not know today is Kanye West’s birthday , and to celebrate Yeezy may be giving his fans a gift. While his fans are anticipating, and patiently waiting for his next album to drop, currently titled SWISH for now, reports are surfacing regarding how the project may be released when it finally does come out.
Buzzfeed reports that Apple is in negotiations with the Yeezus rapper to release SWISH exclusively on their upcoming music streaming service, as well as iTunes. Beats Music co-founder Jimmy Iovine has been in “aggressive negotiations” with Yeezy on the possible deal.
The site reports that Apple won’t be announcing any plans with West at their conference tomorrow, which will announce the new service. They state, “sources say the company has been talking to him about it for some time, but hasn’t yet been able to finalize a deal, and negotiations between West and Iovine continue.”
But what about Tidal? The collaboration with Apple would come as a surprise, as Kanye is a co-owner of the rising music-streaming service, Tidal along with Jay-Z.
We’ll have to see how it plays out, and keep it locked for SWISH‘s release in the near future.
