There’s been a lot of talk about Kanye West’s follow-up to 2013’s Yeezus, but, thanks to Yeezy, we now finally have an official album title for the project.
On Saturday night (February 28), Kanye revealed the news we’ve all been waiting for, the title of his seventh official solo album.
So what does this potential album art mean? According to Rolling Stone, it could be inspired by the 13th Century monastic symbol for the Virgin Mary. The religious reference would seem to connect to the album title, right?
But the "m" in the artwork could also be a reference to Roman numerals. As we reported Saturday, West was heavily inspired by lower case Roman numerals when he and Maxime Buchi designed his latest tattoos.
The project has been a long time coming. In September, we got news that 20 people heard at least part of the album. In December, Seth Rogen - yes, Seth Rogen - said he heard about two hours worth of new Kanye material inside of a van. It's unclear how many of the songs from those sessions will make the final cut.
Now that we've got an album title, we're just going to wait on that release date. But if Kanye gets inspired by Beyonce and Drake, we might just get a surprise release. And if that's the case, we better get ready. Yeezy Season could come at any moment.
