Being the perfectionist that Kanye West is, he has been known to work on an album right through the time it’s supposed to be released to the public. That seemed to be the case again for West’s latest album, ye, as Yeezy finished up the track “Ghost Town” just hours prior to his listening session in Wyoming on Thursday night, according to G.O.O.D. Music signee 070 Shake.
The burgeoning rapper sat down with Pigeons & Planes shortly after the world learned she made vocal contributions to ye standout cuts “Ghost Town” and “Violent Crimes.” “I did the recording in Wyoming. We finished that song the same day it came out. I had done a reference for it, and then I guess he forgot about it,” she said. “We put that reference on another song, then Kanye did his own reference for that ‘free’ concept.”
The New Jersey native goes on to say that “Ghost Town” almost didn’t make the album’s final cut. “At the end we were talking and asking, ‘Is this the one right here?’ And I kind of mentioned ‘Ghost Town’ and said maybe we could use something from that. He listened to the reference again, and said, ‘Oh yeah, this is the one.’ So ‘Ghost Town’ almost didn’t make it,” Shake explained.
The Glitter artist notched a feature singing in Spanish on Pusha T’s “Santeria,” which appeared on his bristling seven-track Daytona album. Shake is still hard at work on her debut album that’s expected to drop later in 2018. “I don’t know if it’s going to be called Yellow Girl. I know the songs are definitely changing. The experience I had in Wyoming makes me want to make music on a different level,” she said.
