Kanye West and Drake officially have a joint album on the way.
In a new interview for Vogue, the hip-hop titan and designer confirmed that he and the “Hotline Bling” rapper are teaming up for a new project.
“We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio,” Kanye told the fashion mag. “We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”
The hip-hop superstars appeared to tease the collaboration last month, when a billboard featuring their record label logos was spotted in Los Angeles.
However, speculation began swirling weeks earlier when they both dropped hints at OVO Fest in Toronto on Aug. 1.
“Is y’all ready for this album?” Kanye told the crowd while making a guest appearance during Drake’s set, which a fan captured on Twitter.
“Now I wasn’t talking about ‘Pablo.’ I wasn’t talking about ‘Views,'” he clarified, before gesturing to Drake as the rapper appeared on stage. “I wanna ask y’all right now are y’all ready for this album?”
In another concert moment shared on YouTube, Drake followed up with an audience address of his own to make sure Kanye’s message was understood.
“Are you ready if we make an album? That’s what he was asking,” he said later in the show.
A title or release date for the superstars’ dual effort has yet to be announced, but some fans may already be wondering where it will be made available.
Kanye and Drake’s most recent albums were released exclusively on Tidal and Apple Music, respectively, and Kanye sounded off on the increasingly competitive streaming-music landscape in a colorful Twitter rant over the summer.
“This Tidal Apple beef is f***ing up the music game,” he posted in July.
“We all gon be dead in 100 years,” he added. “Let the kids have the music.”
