Kanye West’s Next Album Is Called ‘Turbo Grafx 16’

Less than two weeks after the release of The Life of Pablo, Kanye West has announced the tentative title of his next album, Turbo Grafx 16.

Yeezy took to Twitter to share the news on Friday (Feb. 26), noting that he was “just on some super nerd vibes” and that the Turbo Grafx 16 was one of his “favorite gaming systems” as a youth in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

My next album is titled   "Turbo Grafx 16"   as of now…

Following his announcement, Yeezus reflected on memories he had with the gaming system that inspired his album title.

West’s admission that this is the album’s name “as of now” means that a change is possible. Of course, that’s precisely what happened with The Life of Pablo, which went through three titles before being finalized: So Help Me God, Swish, and Waves.

No official release date has been confirmed, but West previously announced that it would drop in the summer.

New album coming this summer

The news comes after Mr. West premiered his new song “Closest Thing to Einstein” at an L.A. nightclub earlier this week. Additionally, a snippet of a Kanye-Migos collaboration also leaked, but it’s unclear where it will end up.
