[Updated]: The “more” has come. Mercy has dropped a few hours before its anticipated release. Listen below.
2010 saw the release of a succession of singles from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy through Kanye West’s label, GOOD. Music, standing for “getting out our dreams.” They were released on Fridays. They were called G.O.O.D. Fridays, featuring songs that made it on Ye’s masterpiece of hip hop, and some that didn’t. The full list can be found here courtesy of Wikipedia.
Now, Kanye has treated us to what must be a GOOD Wednesday with a new song, “Thera Flu Ft. DJ Khaled,” hitting Soundcloud a couple hours ago. You can find the song streaming here.
All of this is happening while it looks like G.O.O.D. Fridays will be coming back, specifically on this upcoming Good Friday (in a Roman Catholic sense, that is). If one goes to Kanye’s website, kanyewest.com, they are treated with the classic black screen and bold red text of the upcoming single. Friday’s looks to be called “Mercy” and features Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz.
This could mean that, like the G.O.O.D. Fridays before it, this single is meant to promote the release of a new album, likely the much-rumored GOOD Music compilation disc. In the vein of Lil’ Wayne’s label, Young Money’s, We Are Young Money, it is likely to feature such GOOD Music artists as Ye, John Legend, Kid Cudi, Mos Def, Pusha T, and others, along with regular Kanye guests such as Jay-Z and Common. At this point, nothing has been officially been announced, but the new single and the restart of G.O.O.D. Fridays is certainly a basis for more speculation.
