Pusha T is set to drop a highly-anticipated album produced by Kanye West titled “DAYTONA” (via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam). The album drops May 25, 2018. The cover art was revealed on Thursday featuring a photo secretly taken of Whitney Houston’s bathroom in 2006, providing just a small yet powerful glimpse into the pop star’s addiction to drugs. The photo was originally featured in a 2006 edition of National Enquirer, detailing Houston’s “drug den.” During an interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105.1, Pusha T revealed the album cover was Kanye West’s idea and that Kanye paid $85,000 out of his own pocket to license the photo.
The album is set to feature Rick Ross on the track “Hard Piano,” while Kanye will appear on the track titled “What Would Meek Do?”
On the closing song of the album, “Infrared,” lyrics have surfaced that appear to be a shot at Drake and rumors of his “ghostwriter” Quentin Miller.
Ya hooks did it
The lyrics pennin’ equal to Trump’s winnin’
The bigger question is how the Russians did it
It was written like Nas
But it came from Quentin
“DAYTONA” is set to have 7 tracks. Pusha T will be looking to kickoff Kanye’s new string of music with some hype.
Pusha T spoke with Entertainment Weekly on Thursday, informing them that the album’s cover art “definitely does match the energy of my album.”
“I feel like the cover represents an organized chaos,” said Pusha-T. “The energy of the album is a bit chaotic, but it’s all in place. Looks at that cover, I’m sure whoever frequents that bathroom or area knew whatever they wanted to find and knew where it was.”
