New Kanye: “Mama’s Boyfriend”
Download (right click, “save as”): Kayne West, “Mama’s Boyfriend”
While Kanye West’s twitter has been disappointingly quiet for the past two months, the G.O.O.D. Music mill has just pumped out a new Kanye single: “Mama’s Boyfriend”.
The weird Oedipal vibe aside, this track is pure jubilance, bringing back the breeziness of throwback ‘Ye.
Prepare to hear this one riding the radio waves well into the summer.
UPDATE: According to Billboard, this version of “Mama’s Boyfriend” is unofficial, or “bogus” (even though it was release on West’s blog). Here’s the entire statement released by West earlier today:
“The version of the Kanye West recording “Mama’s Boy” that arrived on blog sites earlier this week is entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions. As is often the unfortunate case, an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West’s vocal track and added their own soundbed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track from the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions. The result in no way resembles the final song Kanye West intended his fans to hear, and he is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way. Needless to say, measures are being taken to identify and prosecute the persons responsible for leaking this material.”
Hmmm…we’ll keep spinning this one until the official version peeps its head.
