Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music To Drop New Single 'Mercy' On Good Friday
The track is expected to feature West, Pusha T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz.
Good Friday just got a little more G.O.O.D., as Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label will release a new single, "Mercy," on Friday, April 6. The track will presumably preview the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music group album.
News of the single came via Pusha T, the Clipse rapper who is currently working on his official debut album for the Def Jam imprint. "April 6th is GOOD Friday… "MERCY" drops.." he posted on Twitter.
Def Jam has revealed the single artwork, which confirms that West, Pusha T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz will be on the single.
The G.O.O.D. Friday stunt -- which nicely coincides with the Good Friday holiday this week -- was originally started by West in 2010 as a means of promoting his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album. Although that G.O.O.D. Friday campaign became a weekly song reveal, Pusha T did not state whether or not "Mercy" was the beginning of a prolonged series.
In December, Big Sean revealed that a long-in-the-works G.O.O.D. Music album was "almost done," and would feature West, Kid Cudi, CyHi da Prynce, John Legend, Common, Pusha T and Mr. Hudson, among others. The album does not yet have a release date.
