Two weeks ago DJ Clark Kent leaked "XTCY", a new Kanye West song that the two made together. At the time, it was a pretty bad song. The noteworthy line in the song– – apart from an ad-lib of "Scoop!" calling back to "Lift Yourself" – is the vaguely repulsive "You got a sister-in-law you'd smash? I got four of em". It's the first song West has released since his five-albums-in-five-weeks G.O.O.D. Music bonanza earlier this summer, when he released PUSHA-T's Daytona, Teyana Taylor's Keep That Same Energy, Nas's Nasir, his own record Ye, and his collaborative album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts.
Now, Kanye has released "XTCY" for real, and guess what! It's still fine. The album artwork is a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy-style illustration of that recent "middle fingers all round" Kardashian/Jenner women pic. In case you'd forgotten, Kanye would very much like to smash most of the women pictured. Listen at your own peril, below.
