Kim’s Birthday Tweet Sparks Interest In Kanye’s New Album
Kanye West has said of the next album he’ll release: “Bruce Springsteen dropped this album called Nebraska and right after that he did Born In The U.S.A.. This next one, I have a feeling…has to be Born In The U.S.A.”
When Kim Kardashian tweeted about her husband’s birthday this morning, I couldn’t help but illogically hope the day was here—Born In The U.S.A, Yeezus edition had arrived! It’s called SWISH! Surprise! Then Apple Music came out; Kanye’s been courting Eric Schmidt for a while (remember his Yeezus Tour rant?), so speculation surrounding a deal with Apple also seemed viable.
Kanye’s bday today is gonna be a major SWISH!!! I planned the craziest surprise! Will share later! Sooooo excited!!!!!!

Turns out, the big surprise today is really just for Kanye to enjoy. Kim’s rented out the Staples Center for Kanye and his boys (including Justin Bieber and 2 Chainz), and no Apple Music exclusive has been released, aside from a Drake cameo with Beats radio.
No SWISH yet, but that’s okay—it’s Kanye’s birthday, and he can ball if he wants to.
