One of the most anticipated releases of 2016 is Kanye West's new album, “Swish.” No official release date has been announced yet, but his wife, Kim Kardashian West, teased the idea of a new song off the album coming out every Friday until the record comes out.
Kardashian, 35, posted a tweet early Friday morning that new music from "Swish" could be on the way from the "Stronger" rapper. Fridays have become the official day of the week that new music is released, but Kanye has yet to post a new song this week. You can see Kardashian's tweet below:

Putting out a new song leading up to a new album is something the 38-year-old rapper has done in the past. According to Entertainment Weekly, Kanye used to have "GOOD Fridays," where he premiered a new song from his 2010 album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
Kanye has been occasionally releasing a new song over the past year. His latest dropped on New Year's Eve, when he debuted a new song called "Facts," which can be heard here. Prior to "Facts," he released the songs "Only One," "All Day" and "Wolves," which featured Sia and Vic Mensa. While he hasn't put out a new song of his own this week, Sia released a new song called "Reaper," which the "Gold Digger" rapper wrote and produced.
In December 2015, Kanye revealed on Twitter that he was nearing the end of his latest album and collection. He also posted that he didn't want anyone to bother him until he was finished making new music. The tweet can be seen below:
no offense to anyone… I’m asking everyone DON’T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I’M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM

So far, the only thing West has released on Friday is a statement clarifying a line from "Facts." He posted a tweet on Twitter saying that the media spun his words about NBA star Lebron James. He referred to James as "family" and he'd never "downplay" the basketball player.
Stay tuned to Kanye's Twitter on Friday to see if the rapper does drop another new song.
