Kanye West is ruling 2015 and we're barely done with February.
With the debut of his YEEZY SEASON 1 apparel line with Adidas, the successful launch of his Yeezy 750 Boost sneaker, and a performance during New York Fashion Week that shut down a portion of Manhattan, it truly is Yeezus season. And in the scrum that is Kanye's full court press, fans finally got confirmation of one track off of his still-untitled upcoming album. "Wolves" is a showcase for an auto-tuned Yeezy, and features vocal support from Australian singer Sia, of "Chandelier" fame, and rising Chicago MC Vic Mensa, of the Save Money crew.
"Wolves" was produced by Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke and in addition to being the first confirmed song on West's seventh studio album, it's also confirmed as the first track on the album. "Wolves" debuted during the adidas fashion show on Feb. 12th in New York and was followed by a repeat performance during Saturday Night Lives' 40th anniversary special.
During an appearance on The Breakfast Club last week, Ye revealed that the name "Wolves" was supposed to be the title for a Watch-the-Throne-style album-length project with Drake. Sadly, that collaboration seems to be on permanent hold, but we still have "Wolves." And it sounds amazing.
