Kanye West drops controversial album title

Kanye West has ditched the controversial title for his next album and changed the name to Swish.

The Stronger hitmaker announced in March (15) that the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Yeezus would be called So Help Me God, noting that "80 per cent" of the record is done.


The religious theme of the title sparked a social media backlash, and West has now announced a change of direction, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "I'm changing my album name to SWISH... I might change it again, but that's the name now."


West has yet to confirm a release date for the much-anticipated album, but he has debuted two new songs, Wolves featuring Sia, and All Day with Sir Paul McCartney.
