I have some wonderful news for all of the Drake and Kanye West fans out there. In a recent interview with Vogue, rapper and fashion designer Kanye West revealed that he and Drizzy are currently working on a joint album:

“We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio. We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”

The 6 God and the Louis Vuitton Don even teased the album onstage at OVO Fest and with a Los Angeles billboard.

Along with the big music reveal, Kanye also spoke about his Yeezy Season 4 collection, as well as the recent casting call controversy. For the latter he stated that the concept came out of a conversation with his longtime collaborator Vanessa Beecroft, and that it was not meant to exclude black women:

“How do you word the idea that you want all variations of black? How do you word that exactly?”
