Kanye West’s much-delayed label showcase hits streets next Tuesday, but fans were treated to a hearty sneak peek when iTunes premiered ninety-second snippets of the album’s twelve songs yesterday. And to further fuel excitement, the official tracklist has been made available as well. And it’s quite interesting!
While there was some uncertainty over which songs would end up making the final cut — summer-smoldering single “Mercy” and Jay-Z-featuring “Clique” were givens, but the Kim Kardashian confessional “Cold” was a little more up in the air – it looks like all the tracks West’s been trotting out this summer made it on. Also interesting is the packed guestlist, which brings in cameos from stars orbiting just outside the G.O.O.D. Music universe: R. Kelly kicks things off with a Kanye collab, Wu-Tang Clansman Raekwon shows up on the album’s crowded fifth entry, and “Higher” joins Pusha T with both The-Dream and Ma$e. Ma$e!
Take a look at the list below:
