"We're putting out a whole album now," Kanye said. "We had done five [songs] so far and then a few of them kind of were out there" — "Monster," also featuring Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Bon Iver, was one of Kanye's weekly "Good Friday" releases — "and I put them on my album. Sorry, Jay!"

Such a heavyweight team-up naturally brings with it major expectations, but Kanye seemed relaxed about the project. "We're going to the South of France at the end of this month just to record new ideas," he said. "We'll probably be done with the album in like a day or whatever," he added, seemingly joking. "If you think about it, it's really easy [for Jay]: He only has to think of, like, 10 verses!"
