Kanye West Previews New Music on Instagram

Seemingly out of nowhere, Kanye West has previewed new music on his Instagram Story, indicating that fans might not have to wait quite as long for his next project.

It's been over three months since Kanye West released his divisive eighth studio album, Ye, but it's starting to look like he's sticking around post-album for the first time in a while. While Ye usually drops off the face of the earth following the release of an album (see Yeezus and The Life of Pablo), this time he's already back previewing new music on his recently revived Instagram.

As pointed out by users on Twitter, the 41-year-old multi-hyphenate has posted a clip of what appears to be new material over on his Instagram story.

Starting with some soul samples before going into something a little more modern sounding, the clip definitely makes it seem as if Yeezy's continuing the style of Ye going into whatever this might be. Of course, it could turn out to be nothing more than an Instagram exclusive clip, but who really ever knows what's going on with the elusive and highly unpredictable Kanye West?

While this might appear to be good news, it's also worth noting that he's recently been in the studio with 6ix9ine for whatever reason. The highly controversial rapper, who pleaded guilty to using a 13-year-old child in a sexual performance back in 2015, has been spotted working with West numerous times now. "I love his energy," West mentioned during an interview on Power 92 last month.
