North West Gives First On-Camera Interview About ‘Elementary School Dropout,’ Her Debut Album

North West was interviewed about her debut album, Elementary School Dropout, at Rolling Loud 2024.

North is the 10-year-old daughter of Ye — formerly known as Kanye West — and Kim Kardashian. Ye took the stage on opening night (Thursday, Mar. 14) of the festival at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif., with North and friends joining him at one point during the set.

In a clip shared by Rolling Loud on Instagram on Saturday, North is seen spending a few minutes with young reporter Jazlyn, aka Jazzy, the 13-year-old behind Jazzys World TV.

The interview was short and sweet.

First, North was asked how she was doing, to which she politely replied, “Good, how are you?”

The next question posed was about Elementary School Dropout — specifically, how the young artist feels about releasing an album, and what people should expect from it.

“It’s gonna be great,” North said.

When will Elementary School Dropout be released? Well, that’s apparently still up in the air.

“Like… I don’t know,” said North.

And when asked whether the project would have any collaborations with Ye, North continued to keep things cryptic: “Maybe! We don’t know yet!”

“Thank you Ms. @kimkardashian for helping out,” Jazzy captioned the video. In another post, she shared photos with both North and Kim.

North announced her album during a Vultures listening party in Phoenix on March 10, joining her dad on stage for “Talking,” the Vultures track on which she’s featured. “Talking” 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.

“I’ve been working on an album,” she shared with the crowd. “And it’s called Elementary School Dropout.”

Elementary School Dropout is an homage to her father’s 2004 album The College Dropout.
