Don’t Fret, Kanye’s Whole Album Isn’t Title ‘I Am A God,’ Just The First Single
The internet had a field day Tuesday with reports that Kanye West was working on an album titled “I Am God,” a rumor that seemed to originate from a parenthetical in a BBC post about what West and Kim Kardashian may name their child (apparently “North” is a name that’s in the running).
Given West’s habit of being outspoken (and a Rolling Stone cover in which he posed in a crown of thorns), many sites were eager to run with the unattributed factoid. The only problem is that that rumor appears to be a bit of a misunderstanding. A reliable source in West’s camp tells HuffPost Entertainment that the title is actual for an upcoming single, and that the album’s name has yet to be set. The track will be called “I Am A God” (emphasis added).
“We would never be so presumptuous or sacrilegious to call ourselves the supreme being,” the source said. While everyone will have to wait for the actual song to parse the specifics of the song’s message, the source hinted that the idea was generally that all people are manifestations of a higher power.
