In music, anticipation often goes hand in hand with frustration, and the collaborative album 'Vultures' by Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign is no exception to this rule. Fans, who have been eagerly awaiting the release of this highly-anticipated project, were hit with a wave of disappointment as the album's release date saw another delay.
Initially slated for a December 15th drop, the album's release was postponed to December 31st. This decision was attributed to the need for additional time to clear samples and facilitate collaborations with other artists.
However, the twists and turns of the music industry have once again reared their head, and the release date has been rescheduled for January 12th.
One of the major stumbling blocks in the journey to bring 'Vultures' to the eager ears of fans has been the intricate process of clearing samples.
Just like Donda, release date after release date just to hype up the album.

The inclusion of a sample from the Backstreet Boys' 1997 hit 'Everybody' proved to be a challenging endeavor. Furthermore, disagreements regarding including Kanye's 2018 track 'New Body,' featuring Nicki Minaj, further complicated the album's rollout.
Fan Frustration Grows
This second delay has struck a chord of frustration among devoted supporters of both Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign. The anticipation for new music from these two renowned artists had been steadily building, fueled by their cryptic social media teasers in October, where they shared symbols representing their names.
The excitement escalated with the release of the album's lead single, "Vultures," featuring Lil Durk and Bump J in November.
However, Kanye West has a history of encountering obstacles to album releases.

The notorious cases of 'Donda' and 'Yandhi' serve as painful reminders of previously scrapped projects. As a result, Kanye's loyal followers took to platforms like Twitter and TikTok to vent their frustration, questioning how long they would have to wait for the much-anticipated collaboration between these chart-topping artists to see the light of day.
In the ever-evolving world of music production, delays and setbacks are par for the course.
Yall are upset about this? I just hope he releases an album at this point. Who knows if he will even release it.
