The track was first teased by West at the end of ‘Real Friends’, which was released on January 9. It had been suggested that West would release a new song every Friday until the release of new album ‘Swish’ in February. However, a new track did not appear online last week.
Kim Kardashian explained in a tweet that West did not release the track on Friday (January 16) as expected because he was busy putting the final touches to his latest Yeezy fashion collection in Italy.
West has rectified this today (January 18). ‘No More Parties In LA’ was produced by West and Madlib and is the first ever collaboration between West and Lamar.
West released 15 new tracks each Friday in the run-up to the release of his fifth studio album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ in 2010. Three G.O.O.D. Fridays tracks also appeared on the album: ‘Power’, ‘Monster’ and ‘So Appalled’.
‘Swish’ was due for release in 2015 but has been delayed repeatedly while West finishes work on it. The rapper previously asked that he be left alone until the record is released, posting on Twitter: “No offense to anyone… I’m asking everyone DON’T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I’M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM”.
‘No More Parties In LA’ marks West’s fifth release of the last 12 months, following ‘Real Friends’, ‘Facts’, ‘All Day’ and ‘FourFiveSeconds’. A Sia collaboration titled ‘Wolves’ was also unofficially debuted at New York Fashion Week.
