The compilation will be released on Monday (September 17), but is being circulated illegally online
Kanye West‘s ‘Cruel Summer’ compilation has leaked online, three days ahead of its official release date of Monday (September 17).
Full-length versions of all the tracks on the compilation can be found on YouTube, or you can scroll down to listen to excerpts from the album.
‘Cruel Summer’ contains 12 tracks in all and features all the acts signed to West’s GOOD Music label including Mr Hudson, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, Pusha T and Big Sean.
‘Cruel Summer’ also features guest appearances from R Kelly, who duets with West on the album opener ‘To The World’, West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ partner Jay-Z, who guests on ‘Clique’ alongside Big Sean, and John Legend, who appears on the track ‘Bliss’ alongside Teyana Taylor. The album will be released on September 17.
An experimental 30-minute film inspired album, also titled Cruel Summer, made its debut in Cannes earlier this year. The film, which was projected onto seven screens inside a pyramid-shaped tent, stars hip-hop artist and actor Kid Cudi as a car thief who falls in love with a blind Arabian princess.
