Kanye West may be releasing his new album via Apple instead of his pal and frequent collaborator Jay-Z’s Tidal. According to a new report by Hits Daily Double, ‘Ye is “distancing himself from Tidal, firing Roc Nation and managing himself, with an unofficial assist from the Jenner-Kardashian clan.”
The music blog further claims “there’s been some chatter” that West’s new LP, which is now called “Swish”, would be “connected to Apple Music’s launch.” There’s still no official word from the rapper.
West’s support for Tidal has been questioned since he deleted all his tweets referencing to the company. After appearing alongside a number of A-list musicians like Beyonce Knowles, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Madonna during the launch in March, the 37-year-old entertainer last month removed all posts mentioning the streaming service before posting the Tidal logo and simply writing, “The love of music is louder than words.”
