The wait (and hype) is over for fans wondering what Kanye West would name his newest album.
Yesterday via Twitter, West announced the name of his forthcoming disc. “The official album title is and always will be…,” West first tweeted before following up with the name, “MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY.”
After emerging from self-exile with his triumphant single, “Power,” the introspective “Runaway” and a slew of new music via his G.O.O.D. Fridays campaign, West can put to rest the rumors of the album being called “Good-A** Job” or “Mama’s Boy.”
West went on to announce the details about his first song on the new album, “Dark Fantasy,” which is produced by Wu-Tang front man, RZA, and co-produced by No I.D.
Last week, the song “Lost in the World” leaked, causing West to rethink G.O.O.D. Fridays and address the issue. “I ain’t letting no leaks have any affect on my song choices,” he said. “All of the Lights is the next single but wait till yall here the final!!!!!”
Well, regardless of the songs, critics aren’t too keen on the album name.
“We’d be lying if we said we’re happy with his decision,” wrote James Montgomery of MTV News. “After all, not only is 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' sort of a mouthful, but it kind of sounds like something a melodramatic 15-year-old girl would write in her dream journal.”
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” is set for release on November 22, a day before Nicki Minaj releases her highly-anticipated debut, “Pink Friday.” According to his Twitter account, West is in Paris working with a graphics house on the typeface for the album cover.
kANYe is DOPE!!!! EVER SINCE FIRST ALBUM.. yEA i agREE he fuQed UP when he beCAmE aRROGant but his muSIQ is still gOOD .. i cANT wAIT!!! so many hataz i wonder why you even read the blog??
Holy crap... You actually meant to type that nonsensical bull...???!!!!
You're attempt at sounding cool only ends up making you look like a moron. WORD!
i think he has that auto tune app for typing. also, name me a rapper that isnt arrogant.
anye might be good at his music but horrible at producing videos, his production for drakes video suked ! kanye has changed into a complete jack*** not my words but obamas jajaja.
I'm just an ignorant troll that serves no useful purpose in life. I was abused as a child and feel the only way to get attention is to be a whiney little girl on these blogs. Just ignore me because I really am stupid and don't deserve anything in life.
hate it or love it, but Kanye is on pace to become our generation's Michael Jackson. He makes some of the best and original music, only to be rivaled by Lady Gaga, and his stage performances are a feast for the ears and eyes. Hi Haters.
Kanye is soooOOO i love with himself, but the joke is no one is listening,
he is a has been before and after and will always remain.
the next single is not Dark Fantasy at all. The next single is All of The Lights, the song that got leaked ft. Drake. Alll that kanye said is that Dark Fantasy is the first song on his album.
Also Kanye did not stop G.O.O.D. Fridays, he released Chirstian Dior Denim Flow on friday which was a big up to all the models.
Can't wait to buy i might buy two copies!
One part of this article is incorrect – Kanye announced the next single's actually going to be "All of the Lights".
I'm far from beign white and fat, but I bet you are.
YOUR FAT WHITE AND A STUPID NERD
If YOU'RE going to call someone stupid, at least learn to spell YOU'RE correctly. Troll!
I am really looking forward to RZA's stuff on here.
Why does anybody care about this egomaniac nugga?
You care enough about him. You are trying to troll people here.
AVERAGE BLACK MAN IS NOTHING BUT A MIDDLE AGE FAT NERD SITTING IN HIS MOMS BASEMENT

Funny, to some people, Kanye is a Dark, Twisted Fantasy. LOL!
LoL. Yeah, and he hasn't been too good since his first album. Fame has destroyed his personality. It ruined him.
