Kanye West took Twitter by storm a few weeks ago, and has amassed nearly 750,000 followers in a short time.
Over the weekend, West made an announcement about releasing new music in a very new media way – free, every Friday, from now until Christmas.
He called it “Good Fridays,” which also seems to coincide with his label, GOOD Music.
Here’s the Twitter announcement:
Swizz looked at me the other night and said man are you getting sleep and I told him I can’t sleep… My people need this new music
I know yall need the music so I’m dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc…
I’m calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now
Well, Kanye may not have lost his extreme cockiness that sometimes can get him in trouble, but he does have an interesting way to get fans involved in the process of an album release. And it will surely bring more followers to his Twitter feed, where, in between Friday new music releases, he can communicate about other issues.
West’s first “Good Friday” was last Friday with the Jay-Z “Power” remix – maybe the next one will be the collaboration he promised with the only person he follows on Twitter: Justin Bieber.
