North West Announces Debut Album ‘Elementary School Dropout’ at Kanye West’s ‘Vultures’ Event

Kanye West isn’t going to be the only musician in the family. His and Kim Kardashian’s 10-year-old daughter, North West, revealed she’s working on her debut album, Elementary School Dropout, in an homage to her father’s acclaimed 2004 LP College Dropout.

North made the revelation during a Vultures listening party in Phoenix on Sunday night (March 10) when she hit the stage with the rapper — who now goes by Ye — in Vultures merchandise and a fur hat for her “Talking” track on the album.

“And I’ve been working on an album,” she shared, which drew a loud ovation from the crowd. “And it’s called Elementary School Dropout.”

North’s younger siblings Chicago and Psalm also joined her on the Footprint Center stage in an adorable moment as they held hands and danced to her Vultures song.

It’s likely that Ye will be heavily involved with the creative process for ESD. North is featured on Vultures‘ “Talking,” which debuted at No. 30 on the Hot 100 with 12.33 million official U.S. streams in its first week of tracking.

The Hot 100 entry made her one of the youngest artists to ever appear on the chart as well as the Emerging Artist tally. Kardashian celebrated her daughter’s accomplishment for “Talking” by writing on Instagram Story with a repost of the chart at the time, “My baby!!!!”

Look for North to continue on the trail with her father and Ty Dolla $ign for the Vultures listening-party experiences, which will take over the Chase Center in San Francisco on Tuesday (March 12).

During a recent event, Ye and Ty played a handful of songs slated to land on their upcoming Vultures 2 sequel, which included “Enemies,” “Believin” featuring Project Pat, “Promotion” featuring Future, “Slide,” “Dead” with Future and Lil Durk as well as fan-favorite “Field Trip/Venom” featuring Don Toliver, Playboi Carti and Lil Durk.

The Vultures duo is scheduled to make a live performance debut with a Thursday night (March 14) set at Rolling Loud California. It’s unclear when Vultures 2 is slated to arrive, as Ye — who has faced criticism and lost business deals due to his hate speech — has teased releasing the project on for $20 rather than going right to streaming services. It was previously announced for a March 8 release date.
