The world of music is going through an upheaval right now. At a time when Taylor Swift and Beyoncé are rising up the ranks thanks to their concert movies, Kanye West is charting his own comeback. In the race of the hip-hop legends, the ubiquitous rapper currently stands months behind his rival, Drake, who has already succeeded the former’s ‘Donda’ with two subsequent albums. Furthermore, his own protégé, Travis Scott, sounded his ‘Utopia’ album months back, leaving the rapper with much ground to catch up to. Nonetheless, Ye has an upcoming album in the works, currently underway in Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime, a recent photo on the Internet comes across as the Holy Grail of all updates.

It is no secret that Ty Dolla $ign and Kanye West are collaborating on an upcoming album, ‘Y$’ for which the former has sent out tons of teases. Regardless, fans are still in the lurch for any official news of a full-fledged album. Coming in to end that wait is a recent photo snapped by Wayne. The picture has Ye, Ty Dolla $ign, and Lil Durk walking alongside in Abu Dhabi, as a testament of an upcoming album in all glory.

Interestingly, the picture fits perfectly with earlier rumors that the rapper was collaborating with some of the biggest names in rap for one of the biggest albums of recent times. The rumors had then perfectly aligned with ticket listings and possible infrastructure for a purported concert and listening party. However, all of it had fallen flat. Nevertheless, the sightings confirm that West and his team are still headfirst committed to developing a mammoth collaborative album.
