Kanye West representatives say he may release his fourth album toward the end of this year, according to billboard.com. "Love Lockdown" is rumored to be the first single of the new album.
The Chicago-based rapper, who is also currently working on Jay-Z's pending release, "Blueprint III," may follow along the theme established with his previous releases: "College Dropout," "Late Registration" and "Graduation." Though no official title has been confirmed, West once called the upcoming album "Good Ass Job."
According to Nielsen SoundScan, "Graduation" has sold over 2 million copies since its release one year ago.
