Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign are teaming up to give fans something great. Ty Dolla $ign recently debuted a new version of Kanye’s and Nicki Minaj’s collab for “New Body,” updating the song and creating buzz surrounding his upcoming album with Ye. The highly anticipated track was first previewed in Switzerland last month, and fans can hardly wait now that it’s circulating the internet again. The song was supposed to appear on Kanye’s 2019 album Yandhi, however it never dropped. As Nicki Minaj previously has stated in previous interviews, her and Kanye didn’t see eye to eye when Ye made his pivot into religious music and wanted Nicki to re-record her verse. However, now that new music from Ye is on the way, and Ty Dolla $ign has been teasing it, we may get that track sooner than later.
Now, Dolla $ign and Kanye are reportedly hunting for a distribution partner for their upcoming collaborative album. According to sources close to the project, Billboard reports that the duo is currently weighing five different offers from potential distributors. A decision regarding the partnership is expected to be made by West soon. The anticipation surrounding this musical endeavor is definitely high. Their joint album was originally slated for release on Friday, October 13. However it’s been pushed back and is now expected to drop in the upcoming weeks.

Despite the album’s apparently non-controversial lyrical content, several label executives have already declined the opportunity to distribute the project.
