Kanye West Shows Less Is More For “Yeezus” Album Artwork
To no surprise, Kanye West has decided to go against the grain for the cover art on his forthcoming sixth studio album.
The rapper revealed the album’s cover on his website Friday, and the concept is simple and straight to the point — no album booklet or graphics, just a plain CD with a red piece of tape that reads Yeezus.
The Grammy-winning artist knows how to keep his fans guessing. Last week, girlfriend Kim Kardashian tweeted a picture of what everyone thought was the album’s artwork before his appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” Looks like the joke was on us.
“Yeezus,” which includes tracks like “Black Skinheads” and “New Slaves,” is set to hit stores on June 18.
