Are Kanye West and Post Malone collaborating again? Fans sense ‘catastrophic hit’
Kanye West first tapped Post Malone on the song ‘Fade’ for his album ‘The Life of Pablo’ in 2016. However, we all remember the injustice served to the fans as Malone hopped on the vocals for barely 10 seconds. While the fans never got a full-fledged track from the duo, it now looks like their wish to see them joining hands might finally come true.
All hell broke loose after a short video clip featuring Post Malone and Kanye West surfaced on the Internet over the weekend. In the viral clip, we could see the ‘Congratulations’ hitmaker having a ball with West in a studio as they get carried away while bumping to what we assume could be their brand new single. Though Malone and West have not confirmed about cooking a song together, social media users quickly jumped to a conclusion that they might finally get to see two iconic artists coming together for a banger.

Are Kanye West and Post Malone collaborating again?
Post Malone in the new viral video can be seen wearing a cool summer shirt while Kanye sticks to his dark shades. Robin Pecknold of indie-folk band Fleet Foxes was also present at the studio. While there is no official information on the track and the collaboration, MEAWW will keep you posted with updates. Apart from Kanye West’s song ‘Fade’ with Post Malone, they also apparently recorded a track called ‘F**k the Internet’ which, unfortunately, never saw the light of the day.
Speaking about scoring a collaboration with Kanye West, the multi-platinum singer-songwriter in 2015 told Billboard that it was one of the scariest experiences in the studio for him. “He sent me a session, so I worked on a song, and when I went back to Los Angeles we got into the studio together at Rick Rubin's.” He added, “It was the scariest experience ever. Letting him listen to you record, when he's sitting over there and can hear you making weird noises -- it's intimidating, but he is such a cool guy.”
In 2017, Malone spoke about their track ‘Fade’ on DJ Whoo Kid's radio show on Shade 45. “Fade’ was just a dope vibe, a little funky vibe, so let’s try something new,” the rapper says about his collaboration with Kanye. You never really know what to expect, but [Kanye] played me the song, or he sent me the song so I could hear it. And then I did like a scratch vocal and then I got in the actual studio with him and actually cut the real vocals to the song”, as reported by Fader. Malone added, “I’ll tell you what. He’s got this pad of paper with just like thousands of ideas in it, lines that he’ll use. Throughout the day he’ll probably just think of something and write it down, he flips through and comes up with the craziest stuff, off a freestyle, off a flow. We kinda record in the same way, but in his way he’s just so much more genius than me.”
‘I sense a catastrophic hit’
Social media users were in for a surprise as they saw Malone and West under one roof. Speaking on the same, one user said, “This Lowkey fire. Not sure how to feel abt the gospel-sound but I love Posty enough to accept whatever he serves me.” Another user claimed, “I sense a catastrophic hit.” Whereas, one user asserted, “W that song is gonna be fire.”
The next one added, “If something comes out of this I’ll be so f**king happy” as another mentioned, “I feel like their next song would be an absolute banger and crash the radio scene.” One user chimed in and tweeted, “Post Malone's ten seconds of vocals on Fade is one of the best features on a Kanye project ever, so I'm hoping Kanye can help him get back to his creative roots again rather than Post continuing down the direction of his last single.” While another individual concluded, “They’d make some dope s**t for sure.”
