In a total Kanye West move, he just changed the name of his upcoming album, which drops in just over two weeks, from SWISH to WAVES. Kanye didn't reveal the reason for the change, but per usual, this kind of surprising news sent Twitter into a frenzy over which name is better. While some seemed to prefer SWISH, it looks like the majority are in favor of the new 🌊 lifestyle that 'Ye is coming with. With WAVES dropping on Feb. 11, let's hope that Kanye doesn't decide to change his mind again.

A few artists also responded to Kanye West changing his album title to WAVES, including fellow Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins. For those unaware, Jenkins released his Wave[s] EP last August. In a kind jest, he announced on Twitter that his new album title would be SWISH.

Rock band Wavves may have upped the ante with their response:
