Kanye West’s New Song ‘Lift Yourself’ Is Here, And It’s Mostly About Poop

Kanye West has made his musical return, and there’s no way it sounds like anything you might’ve predicted. Unless, that is, you guessed that his first new song since 2016 would be about poop.

On Friday night (April 27), the Chicago rapper — who’s been causing drama all week with his divisive, Trump-supporting tweets — tweeted the link to his website, which now auto-plays a song called “Lift Yourself.” The majority of the track features a chorus of soulful voices singing, “Lift yourself up on your feet, let’s get it on.” Almost two minutes in, ‘Ye speaks over the track, saying, “They don’t realize though, this next verse, this next verse though, these bars, watch this.” He then launches into a “verse” in which he mostly raps a variation of, “whoopdedy-scoop, whoopdedy-whoop-scoop-poop,” followed by an abrupt end. You just can’t make this shit up.

Hours before the song’s release on Friday, West teased “Lift Yourself” by tweeting, “I’m going to drop a song with a verse that will bring Ebro the closure he’s been seeking.” Ebro, of course, is the radio host Kanye’s been semi-feuding with all week. He also added, “the bars,” with a ton of fire emojis to really drive his point home.

Head to kanyewest.com to hear the song in full, and look out for more new music soon. The rapper recently announced that he has a new solo album arriving on June 1, followed by a collaborative project with Kid Cudi on June 8. Let’s hope he gives us some fresh bars that aren’t just about poop.

Iggy Azalea Is Mostly Singing On Her New Pop Song With Quavo

Four years after breaking big with The New Classic, Iggy Azalea has had a career that’s seen almost as many dips as peaks. But the Aussie rapper is still on the grind, and on Friday (February 2), she returned with the new single “Savior.”

There are two major surprises about this hooky, radio-friendly jam: 1) Featured artist Quavo doesn’t get his own verse and is instead relegated to hook duty, and 2) Iggy barely raps on it! This is Iggy in full-on pop mode, pondering over dancehall-inspired synths, “My heart beats for you only / I wonder if you even know me.” Quavo, meanwhile, lends his Auto-Tuned touch to the instantly hummable refrain: “I’ve been looking for a savior.”

In a video posted to Twitter, Iggy explained why the song hits home for her, saying, “It is not a record about you needing a man or a woman to come and save you in a relationship. It’s about you being your own savior and finding your own strength within yourself to figure it the fuck out. It’s a really hard record for me to have written and I think it’s going to be one I really struggle to perform, too, just ‘cause I’ll probably wanna cry every single time.”

She added in a separate tweet, “I just wanted to share what I went thru with depression for the last few years and spread a message that you can find your happy.”

According to Genius, “Savior” is the lead single from Iggy’s upcoming sophomore album, Surviving the Summer (meaning Digital Distortion has apparently been scrapped once and for all). Keep your eyes peeled for the LP’s arrival this year.
