Kanye West Revives G.O.O.D. Fridays Series with “Real Friends” [STREAM]

If Kanye West plans to roll out new music every Friday, then SWISH has to be closer than we all think, right? The last time he committed to this type of run, he was prepping the release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and that was over five years ago.

Kim Kardashian broke the news about the revival of the Chicago rapper’s G.O.O.D. Fridays series earlier today. “Friiiiiiday!!!! New music!!!! #EveryFriday #Swish #RealFriends,” she tweeted, revealing the name of one of Kanye West’s newest songs.

Just moments ago, Ye unveiled “Real Friends” featuring Ty Dolla Sign and a snippet of his Kendrick Lamar-assisted “No More Parties In LA.” Both follow his disappointing New Year’s Eve offering, “Facts,” that left many wondering about SWISH‘s direction.

“[E]verything I’ve heard is phenomenal,” Pusha T told Rolling Stone, speaking on Kanye West’s forthcoming LP. “He’s super meticulous about the messaging about his album but you guys are in for a treat.”

Those who’ve been tuned into Ye’s rollout knows that the past two years have been a long and fairly underwhelming journey. Hopefully these two new joints mark a turning point.

Listen to it up top, below, or whenever Kanye feels like re-uploading a final version.
