‘Ye’s invading the music blogosphere and in a matter of time, your favorite music stations. With the slew of tracks released, both leaks and free shared by Kanye in his website, this just shows how determined he is for this comeback. And I know you have heard of this countless times but hearing the name Justin Vernon along with his name positively excites me. Plus the crazy awesome tracks with these RNB and rap stars makes me feel like a kid waiting to open my gift at Christmas everytime I check the internet. Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Fridays series probably is the smartest (and most generous) project by anyone in the music industry this 2010. By simultaneously setting up his album and repairing his karma, he really has been on everyone’s tongues. And since he’s on the roll, why should he stop?
A few months ago, Kanye West’s “Monster,” which featured Bon Iver (with other R&B and rap artists) was previewed in countless music sites. Now the two are at it again with a leaked track title “Lost In The World.” The song uses a sample of Bon Iver’s “Woods” throughout the song. The tags are well placed although I’m wouldn’t be looking forward to the album if it makes through the final cut. Who wouldn’t like this?
Oh yeah, and Pitchfork says it also contains samples from Gil Scott-Heron.
The fashion conscious song has elicited BIG STRONG feelings from me. Perfect amount of collaborations without leaving the listener like any of the featured artists are lacking. And the hypnotic John Legend chorus (“I’ve got the world in my hands, the master plan, but I don’t know why I keep calling you”), Kanye’s jam has the impressive array (Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Lloyd Banks and Ryan Leslie) but the difference in this track from the other G.O.O.D. fridays is the extended drum solo and electric guitar. He definitely took it away.
Pusha T’s verse sounds insane. And whatever foul word you can give Kanye, you gotta hand it to him, he know how to mess his haters around with this hard hitting track. Blistering, this song is. But still gotta give my points to that Christian Dior track though.
But wait, there’s some more new Kanye West! Well, sort of. The clearly unfinished “Touch It”\was reportedly recorded for Common and Ludacris, but you can download it below.
