Kanye West Doubles Down On Recent Album Sales Failure, Will Release A New One While He’s on “Saturday Night Live”


Kanye West isn’t satisfied with the low sales of his recent “Ye” album– released June 1st, sold approximately 244,000 copies.

So we’ll get a new Kanye album this Saturday night. It’s called “Yandhi,” which maybe is his Kanye’s take on Gandhi. Anyway, he’ll be the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” so this will be an occasion.

This is less expensive than dragging journalists to Wyoming, as he did for “Ye.”

Kanye’s already causing trouble at rehearsals. He tweeted this afternoon: “I’m at SNL rehearsal and we’re “trying” to have the performance shot on an IPhone Were receiving some push back.”
