Kanye West‘s new album is due out next week. However, as of this past week, the record — whether called SWISH, Waves or So Help Me God — is still a work in progress, according to Jeremih. “For the last week we’ve been doing some writing for Nicki [Minaj], for Kanye,” the R&B singer says to Billboard. “I’m not sure really where he’s at with his album right now, or if he’s actually going to use the work that we’ve done — but if he doesn’t use it, I sure will.”

Clearly, ‘Ye doesn’t mind working under extreme pressure. He paid a visit to producer Rick Rubin for his 2013 album Yeezus two days before the album was due, when five of the tracks required vocals and a couple of them still needed lyrics. Then last week for its follow-up, his mogul wife Kim Kardashian took a poll on Twitter, asking fans what its title should be, just days after ‘Ye hit the studio with Andre 30002 ChainzKid Cudi and Kirk Franklin.

Meanwhile, if it pans out, Jeremih’s recent collaboration with Nicki would be their second, after The Pinkprint‘s “Favorite.” If you haven’t heard that already, listen below.
