On New Year’s Eve, West won’t let us forget that he’s working on that new album. It’s called “Facts” and it is streaming all over on his cloud page.
West references his 2015 VMAs election bid (“2020 Imma run the whole election”), his sneaker success (“I ain’t dropped an album but those shoes went platinum”), Odell Beckham, Jr. and LeBron James. The hook (“Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman”) references Future and Drake’s hit “Jumpman.”
“Facts” was produced by Metro Boomin and Southside. This is the second year West has dropped a new song on New Year’s Eve. Last year, West released “Only One” New Year’s Eve 2014.
The song played over video of people lined up in 1984-like lines. The song, “Fade,” features Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign. West performed at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
