Kanye West’s manager and Akon’s brother, Abou “Bu” Thiam has excited the rapper’s fans through an Instagram comment, teasing what could be a new album.
Bu replied to the reveal of the first release of the Yeezy Gap collaboration saying “WestDayEver. Album OTW!” in response to a post of a $200 [€165] unisex jacket under Gap’s official account announcement. Of course, these plans are loose at this stage and this may just be a way to get the public excited.
However, Thiam is a very close source to West and as his manager, you’d like to take this for fact. The timing also couldn’t be better with this new fashion partnership. Yeezy himself used the phrase “West Day Ever” when the Gap deal was announced.

Kanye, who celebrated his 44th birthday on Tuesday had even greater news when the jacket sold out in just a few hours.
His estranged wife and mother of his children, Kim Kardashian also wished Ye a happy birthday.
