Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign’s “Vultures” Album Pushed Back Again, New Release Date Revealed

Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign’s “Vultures” Album Pushed Back Again, New Release Date Revealed

Ye recently went viral for another unhinged rant.At first, fans anticipated Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s Vultures would drop on December 15. Then reports claimed the album would arrive on December 31. The duo, collectively known as ¥$, pushed back the project again. A representative for Kanye West told Billboard that Vultures is now scheduled to come out on January 12. The long-running music publication previously reported the album had a December 31 release date.

The rollout for Vultures has been rocky. Issues with sample clearances reportedly caused some delays. An apparent unauthorized Backstreet Boys interpolation also raised questions about the potential final product.

Ty Dolla $ign shared a list of songs for Vultures on an Instagram post dated December 8. The Backstreet Boys-inspired “Everybody” does appear on the tracklist. ¥$’s “Everybody” interpolates BSB’s “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” from 1997.

 

According to Ty Dolla, Vultures will also contain “New Body.” That song originally featured Nicki Minaj. However, Minaj said she turned down Kanye West’s request to approve her vocals for the record.

“That train has left the station, OK?” Nicki Minaj stated. “No disrespect in any way. I just put out a brand-new album. Now why would I put out a song that has been out for three years? Come on guys.”

In addition, Kanye West made headlines in recent days for a 10-minute diatribe that went viral. The 46-year-old rapper/producer ranted about Jesus, Adolf Hitler, Zionists, Donald Trump, Jay-Z, Drake, Adidas and more.

West faced widespread backlash in 2022 for making anti-semitic remarks and praising Hitler. He also aligned himself with white nationalist Nick Fuentes. Before those controversies, Ye angered some of his supporters by promoting White Lives Matter shirts and spreading conspiracy theories about the death of George Floyd.

Rihanna Steps Down As Savage X Fenty’s CEO: ‘This Is Just The Beginning For Us’

Rihanna is stepping down as CEO of Savage X Fenty, the lingerie brand she co-founded in 2018. While she still remains as executive chair of the brand, Rihanna said the latest change is part of the company’s effort to keep expanding the vision.

“It’s been beautiful to see our vision for Savage X Fenty impact the industry at such an incredible magnitude over the last five years,” the “Diamonds” singer said, according to Vogue Business. “This is just the beginning for us, and we’re going to continue to expand in ways that always connect with the consumer.”

Beauty mogul Hillary Super will now take over the position that Rihanna held since launching the brand. “I’m so grateful and excited to welcome Hillary Super as our new CEO – she is a strong leader and is focused on taking the business to an even higher level,” Rihanna said.

Super, the former CEO of Anthropologie Group, also held executive positions at Guess, American Eagle, Gap and Old Navy, Independent reported. “I’m thrilled to join the Savage X Fenty family,” Super told Vogue Business. “The brand is a major powerhouse in the lingerie and apparel industry, and its unwavering commitment to celebrating inclusivity and fearlessness is inspiring.”

Savage X Fenty has become a worldwide brand featuring global fashion shows and a wide selection of clothing lines that include lingerie for plus-size models, as well as gender-neutral items. Fenty, which has seven stores in the U.S., is also looking to expand its e-commerce business.

Rihanna now has a net worth of over $1.4 billion. The 35-year-old entrepreneur launched her cosmetics company Fenty Beauty in 2017 before she co-owned Savage X Fenty. Rihanna also has a lot going on; she’s expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky. Rihanna gave birth to her first child, RZA Athelaston, in 2022.
