After giving fans his melodic and emotional single "Only One" at the top of the year, all eyes have been on Kanye West and the status of his new album. It seems like the wait is coming to a close, as Billboard is reporting that he played new music at iHeartRadio's music summit on Wednesday night. The sneak preview didn't come without a 45-minute speech, where West spoke about his evolution from soul beats to working with Daft Punk and adding EDM elements to his music.

Perhaps the funniest part of the report is that Ye recalled asking Paul McCartney "what pussy was like in the '60s" while the two were working on "Only One."

He also spoke at length about comments he made at Governor's Ball in 2013 where he claimed that he didn't want to be on radio anymore and said, "I was joking! Of course I want to be on the radio!" Kanye went on to play a new song that features Rihanna and is described as featuring an acoustic guitar and a "massive hook" and finished things off by slamming his laptop shut and walking offstage to a roaring applause. Seems like Yeezy Season is almost upon us.

UPDATE: Paparazzi caught up with Kanye leaving an event last night, and he confirmed that his new single with Rihanna is coming soon. 'Ye also had a nice laugh about not being able to find his car. Watch the video below.
