Kanye to Release New Song Every Week

Rapper will debut tracks by himself and others through Christmas

August 24, 2010 9:26 AM ET

Kanye West has promised to release new music via Twitter at the end of every week this year, as part of a series he's calling "G.O.O.D. Friday." "I'm dropping one new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song, it may be a new [Jay-Z] song, etc.," Kanye wrote.

Last Friday, Kanye shared the remix of his latest single "Power," which features Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz and replaces the sample of King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man" with one from "The Power," by Snap! Kanye's album, out November 16th, isn't the only disc due this fall from West's G.O.O.D. Music: Kid Cudi's Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager and Consequence's ConTV are also expected, and West recently signed Clipse's Pusha T to a G.O.O.D. Deal. Expect Kanye to share their songs, too. West's remix of Justin Bieber's "Runaway Love" with Raekwon is also in the works. At this rate, we can hopefully expect another single from Kanye's new album -- which features contributions from indie-folk singer Bon Iver – very soon.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
