Kanye West’s new album title could be decided by Kim Kardashian’s Twitter followers

'Waves', 'Swish' or 'So Help Me God'? You decide

The title of Kanye West‘s upcoming new album could be determined by wife Kim Kardashian’s social media following.

The rapper’s seventh studio LP is scheduled to be released on February 11, following on from 2013’s ‘Yeezus’.

Initially announced as ‘So Help Me God’ in March 2015, West then changed the album’s title to ‘Swish’ a few months later in May 2015.

Just a couple of weeks prior to the album’s official release, last month saw West again change the album’s name, this time to ‘Waves’.


Following negative reaction and criticism over the new title ‘Waves’, West’s wife Kim Kardashian has taken to Twitter to ask fans which name they prefer: ‘Waves’, ‘Swish’ or ‘So Help Me God’.

55% of fans currently prefer ‘Swish’ to ‘Waves’, while 48% prefer ‘So Help Me God’ out of all three (correct at time of publishing). See Kardashian’s Twitter polls beneath.

West will release what is currently known as ‘Waves’ on February 11 and will perform the album in full at New York’s Madison Square Gardens that same night. The show will be live-streamed at cinemas around the world, with UK cinema chain Vue amongst those signed up to show the gig live.
