Several of the songs on the album's track list have already been released and achieved popularity, like "Mercy," which features West, Big Sean, Pusha-T and 2 Chainz.
Also included is "Cold," formerly titled "Theraflu." This track made waves upon its release for Kanye's shout-out to Kim Kardashian at a time when the couple had not yet become as ubiquitous as they have been the last few months.
""I'll admit I fell in love with Kim / Around the same time she had fell in love with him," West raps in the song, referring to Kadashian and her ex-husband Kris Humphries.
Kardashian also appeared in the song's music video, lurking in the shadows as she wore a dark hood.
"Cruel Summer" has been gestating for a while. West first announced plans for the album in October 2011 when he tweeted, "GOODMUSIC.THE ALBUM.SPRING2012."
