No, Kanye Is Not Making A David Bowie Album

Since David Bowie’s passing last week, rumors have surfaced that Kanye West would be doing a Bowie-inspired collaborative album of sorts.

People were so adamant, it quickly grew to over 5,000 signatures (and counting), but no worries – the whole report was incorrect to begin with. A rep for Kanye spoke to TMZ and revealed that there were never plans for Bowie and Ye to work together – posthumously or otherwise. They call the report “BS,” and remind fans that SWISH is on the way…totally Bowie-free.
