That didn’t do much to help, either. So now, whether from Yeezy’s own hunger for measurable success, or label pressure, or a combination of both, he is releasing album closer “Bound 2″ as the next single, according to Hip Hop N More. It’s a smart move — “Bound 2″ is the only song on the album, by a wide margin, that could’ve come from Kanye 1.0, and it’s the only feel-good track. In fact, West probably missed an opportunity for this to become a summer party anthem with lyrics like “This that red cup all on the lawn shit.”
Nonetheless, for people who somehow missed those incendiary “Black Skinhead” performances and sinister “New Slaves” projections, this single could very well trick them into buying Yeezus on the assumption that it’s filled with other tracks that echo classic Kanye. Give the radio edit a spin below.
