On Tuesday (Aug 7) Kanye West confirmed that one of the new songs, “Perfect B****,” featured on his upcoming Cruel Summer, was inspired by girlfriend Kim Kardashian. He has since taken down the Twitter admission.
“I wrote the song Perfect B-tch about Kim,” West tweeted of the new track he unveiled at New York’s PH-D Rooftop Lounge this past weekend. The buzz surrounding “Perfect B****” has Yeezy praising the reality show queen as the perfect woman. The track reportedly features a sample from German composer Carl Orff’s 1937 composition “Carmina Burana.” Hardcore hip-hop fans will remember the classical sound from Nas’ 1999 hit single “Hate Me Now.”
West had previously professed his feelings for the pop culture it-girl on the song “Way Too Cold,” rhyming, “And I admit I fell in love with Kim…” While some observers may find the word B**** as derogatory, Kim K herself is reportedly flattered by the song.
There have been rumors that West and Kardashian could soon be headed down the aisle. The reality star’s mother, Kris Jenner, said she would support such a tabloid dream union. “I think that as long as the kids are happy, I’m happy,” Jenner told E-online. “Whatever floats their boat.”
