Here's a quick timeline of the album's identity crisis incase you care:
March 2015: So Help Me God
May 2015: SWISH
January 2016: WAVES
First of all... WTF is WAVES? Who did SWISH offend to get thrown out of the studio so unceremoniously? And when and where did he lose his album naming flair? His seventh studio album is being released next month so there's still a window in case he decides he wants to change it again. Here are our PERFECT suggestions:

There's still a MASSIVE chance that Kanye could go seriously meta on everyone and just use a symbol ala Prince. God, that's such a Kanye thing to do.
Honestly, if you ask us... 'WAVES' is a little bit reductive.
Waves are moist. MOIST is way more memorable than WAVES.
Apparently, 'WAVES' has 3 acts now. Who does Kanye think he is? SHAKESPEARE?! In that case, better go all in and just kill the entire game with Hamlet, right?

What ever the name is, we just hope society isn't let down by Kanye's promises.
This is not album of the year. This is album of the life.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 26, 2016
