Kanye West‘s leaked new song, ‘Brothers‘ has become the most searched song of the week. Why do some of the biggest artists in the world suffer song leaks? That’s always the question on everyone’s lips. Then again, is it always such a bad thing? It may not be so bad after all as it would create so much buzz especially if your name is Kanye West.
A leaked Kanye West track equals the most views and listens for the week. No jokes. Well, Kanye West‘s new song with Charlie Wilson titled ‘Brothers‘ got more than it bargained for last week. The new track was recorded as an original for record executive, Irv Gotti‘s BET show, Tales.
The song debuted on the premiere of the show’s second season and as you’d expect, was unexpectedly cut off before it ended. Irv Gotti then posted the full version of the song on his Instagram page after which it was promptly taken down. Well, everyone knows that the taste of new Kanye is the beginning of an internet frenzy. With no way to download or stream the new song, the track became the most searched song on the website.
In other news, people who heard the song already have argued that it’s about fellow Black American rapper, Jay Z. Irv Gotti, in his infamous upload of the track wrote;
“there’s a lot of speculation right now on who is Kanye West rapping about on the song Brothers. So here is the song. That BET cut off because of their [sic] way of airing episodes. But it was always meant for the audience to hear the whole record.
Listen and decide for yourself if you think Kanye is rapping about Jay Z or Virgil. But Ye’s brothers. And also let me know if you liked the episode and song. We did it for y’all. My hip hop culture.”
