Kanye West changing album name again?

2016-02-02 17:00

Los Angeles - Kanye West is considering changing the name of his upcoming album again.

The 38-year-old rapper is getting ready to release his eagerly anticipated new record later this month but according to his wife, Kim Kardashian West, he is still unsure about the title.

After Kanye changed the name of the album from Swish to Waves, Kim took to Twitter to ask fans for their opinion on the title and added another option.

Tagging Kanye in a post, she wrote: "Which album title do you like best? Swish, Waves or So Help Me God?"

If Kanye does decide to change the name of the record, it won't be the first time as he recently decided to ditch the original title Swish in favour of Waves.

Sharing the news with his 17.6 million followers in a series of tweets, he wrote: "New album title, WAVES ... #Waves the album formally known as Swish ... I got this record n*****s can't even play before 2 am. (sic)"

Whatever the album is called, Kanye has already declared it "the best album of all time".

Taking to the micro blogging site, he wrote: "This is not album of the year. This is album of the life ...

"So happy to be finished with the best album of all time (sic)"

Meanwhile, his sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian previously revealed he was finding it difficult to narrow down the track list as there were so many "genuinely terrific songs".

She said: "He has so many songs that we - I act like I'm recording them - that he can't figure out what he wants to put on his album. And they're all genuinely terrific songs.

"He is so passionate. He's like, every bit the meaning of an artist."

The album is expected to be released on 11 February.
