There's been a lot of buzz about Kanye and his new album, So Help Me God, ever since he decimated the Brit Awards with the debut of "All Day" and a bunch of flamethrowers. The album is almost finished and everyone is hungrily awaiting the surprise release that Ye says is imminent. After hearing the studio version of "All Day," complete with that so-bizarre-it-works Paul McCartney whistle finale, hopes are high for So Help Me God.
Today, Noisey reported that a new Kanye song appeared online, following the alleged theft of Kanye's laptop. The song, "Awesome," is a cringeworthy love ballad about Kim Kardashian. Kanye croons lines like "Baby, you're awesome / You don't need to listen to your manager / You're way too hot for them to handle ya" drenched in auto-tune. The song was first performed in 2013 and a low-quality recording of the song has been on YouTube since September, but this is the first time we're hearing the finished studio version.
We don't know if the song was just meant for a Valentine's Day mixtape or if it will end up on So Help Me God—but there's a Twitter account for Kanye's laptop hinting that it will release the full record, so we might find out soon. The account says it will drop a song called "YZ 2.0" once it hits 100,000 followers.
