Kanye West’s Anticipated Album has Eagle High Students Thrilled

Sophomores Jackson Phillips, Brockton Yadon and William Anderson are enjoying rapper Kayne West newest album “Vultures.” “Vultures” was released on Feb. 9, 2024.

Kanye West is a very controversial figure. He has gone on rants and made comments that some might deem “crossing the line.” Though that may be the case, West’s albums seem to be doing well in numbers, which makes one wonder how his anticipated album, “Vultures,” will keep up. 

“Vultures” has been highly anticipated since the release of his last album “Donda 2.” West has hinted at the idea of an upcoming album, posting various pictures and design ideas on his Instagram story and sharing lists of the songs that are meant to be on the album. “Vultures” is going to be a collaboration album with artist Ty Dolla $ign, a popular R&B singer and producer.  

West posted on his Instagram story that the album is set to drop in three separate volumes, one already released on Feb. 10, the other two parts on March 8 and April 5. It was to most fan’s knowledge that album was going to be dropped all at the same time, but recently, West decided to split the album up as there are a large number of songs to be worked on. This is, of course, if there are no setbacks to the project. 

West has gained a notoriety around him when it comes to albums being set back and just not being dropped at all. Certain examples include when he was supposed to release “Donda” on the initial date of July 24, 2020, but instead was pushed back to Aug. 6 of the same year. Another infamous example of this happening was the album “Yandhi,” which had been hyped up and set to release in 2018. Initially, the date it was set to release was Sept. 29, later being pushed back, eventually not releasing. Fans are getting increasingly worried about “Vultures” and whether it would drop due to it also having a delay of its own, supposedly being ready to drop on Dec. 15, and then another false drop on Jan. 23. 

Even though West may be known for his delays and unreleased songs and albums, fans seem to continue enjoying his music. 

“I like how he did the whole ‘Donda’ thing, with the gospel music. I like the collaborations that he has with other artists, and the high-quality production that he puts into his music,” said junior Nathan Kendall. Kendall considers himself a casual listener of West, not being the most avid fan, but not disliking his music.  

“He’s inspirational. His words make my emotions go through the roof.” said sophomore and die hard Kanye fan Jonah Alford.  

Even though West has his fans, he has also lost many along the way due to his unhinged and uncensored attitude in recent years. West made various comments that are considered Anti-Semitic. West also has been going on numerous rants, calling out certain artists and celebrities. West saying all these controversial things could make fans refuse to listen to the new album. Old fans have even started to label him “crazy.” 

Although West is a controversial figure, numerous fans still connect to his music and find themselves awaiting his newest drop on Feb. 9. Though they are still on edge about whether or not it will come back after being delayed previously, fans aren’t without hope, anticipating his new album and having faith that it will keep up with his previous records.
