Drake & Björk Might Be on a New Version of Kanye West's 'Wolves'

Less than a day after dropping The Life of Pablo on Tidal, Kanye West tweeted, "Ima fix wolves." The track was already a shining example of TLOP's Build-A-Bear–iness, surprising folks at the album's Madison Square Garden premiere with a new Frank Ocean moment and zero Sia or Vic Mensa, both of whom were featured on the instant cult fixation that was the original version.

Now the Yeezus acolytes on the Kanye To The forum (via Complex) might have found out what the fix entails. A Snapchat post from Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat—who made "Wolves" and has worked with artists like MiguelTinashe and Ty Dolla $ign—shows a stereo display reading "Wolves feat. DrakeBjork."

The site Dazed Digital evidently heard from the Icelandic singer-songwriter that she's not on the track. But let's not forget how many artists haven't realized they were on a Kanye West song until the Kanye West song was out.

And let's also not forget the biggest thing: The title "Wolves" originally came from an idea Kanye and Drake had about doing a joint album. Here's what 'Ye told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club in February 2015:

"I asked him and we talked about it and he said yeah, we was gonna do it, he was sending beats back and forth. It might happen 'cause I threw that out there. But he's probably gonna be mad that I mentioned it on your show."

While continuing to hold out for The Life of Pablo variants isn't a foolish pursuit, also consider that Yeezy is actively underway recording an album he's teasing for this summer, Turbo Grafx 16.
