Hip hop heavyweight Kanye West makes his solo return in 2013. If his last studio efforts were collaborative ones; first the joint album with Jay-Z, "Watch The Throne", in 2011, and then, in 2012, "Cruel Summer" alongside his G.O.O.D Music label signees, the Atlanta-born, and Chicago-raised MC gets back this year to the spotlight solo with "Yeezus" - the official Kanye West follow-up to 2010's critically-acclaimed and Grammy Award-winning "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" - due in stores worldwide on June 18.
The 10-song set features duets with Frank Ocean, Chief Keef, Justin Vernon, King Louie, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, and Charlie Wilson, and productions by Daft Punk, Gesaffelstein, The Heatmakerz, Hudson Mohawke, Mike Dean, No I.D., RZA, Symbolyc One, TNGHT, Travis Scott and Young Chop. On the lyrics aspect, Kanye brings back his A-game. Although, some are calling his lyrics a little more 'head-scratching' than usual. Industry forecasters are expecting "Yeezus" to debut at #1 with over 500k copies sold.
