Kanye West Changes Title of Upcoming Album

Kanye West has changed the title of his upcoming album.  In late February, he revealed on Twitter that the project would be titled So Help Me God. He took to the social media site again on Sunday to make a follow-up announcement: "I’m changing my album name to SWISH." Don't get too attached to "Swish," though: Kanye warned, "I might change it again but that’s the name now."  There's still no release date for the album. Whatever Kanye ends up calling it, it will be the follow-up to his 2013 album, Yeezus.

After the kiss, which took place while Drake was seated onstage, he…
