Kanye West's sixth solo album will be titled "Yeezus" and released on June 18, according to a Rap-Up report on Saturday. West's girlfriend seemed to confirm the title in an Instagrammed photo later in the day:

West's label, Def Jam, has not responded to e-mailed requests for comment on the album title and release date.

Known collaborators for the rapper's followup to 2010's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" include Daft Punk, The-Dream, Skrillex, John Legend, Big Sean and 2 Chainz, among others.

The rapper debuted a new song, titled "New Slaves," on Friday night in an unconventional series of public screenings on sides of buildings around the globe. On Wednesday he performed two new tracks, including the auto tune-heavy "Awesome," during a corporate gig for the Adult Swim network.

Tonight, he returns to "Saturday Night Live."
