#Timbaland” Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign ‘Vultures 1’ Follow Up Soon

Timbaland has teased that the follow-up to Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign‘s Vultures 1 will be coming sooner than everyone thinks.

The producer made the revelation on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday (February 24). Though he didn’t give specifics on what the follow-up would entail, he did tease that he’d have more production work on the wildly successful album’s follow-up.

“Like I said Vulture Vol 2 OTW [fire emojis],” read the post.

Timbaland, who has collaborated with Kanye many times in the past and produced two tracks on Vultures 1, will also be contributing to the next installment.

According to Billboard, Vultures 1earned 148,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, with 129,000 of that figure coming from streaming units (167.78 million on-demand streams in total), 18,000 from pure album sales and 1,000 from TEA (track equivalent album) units.

Kanye is now level with Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand with 11 No. 1 albums to his name, with only Drake and Taylor Swift (13), JAY-Z (14) and The Beatles (19) ahead of him.

The album is Ty Dolla $ign’s first No. 1 and second top 10 following 2020’s Featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

Ye reacted to the news by issuing a brief statement to Complex saying: “It’s a beautiful time.”

Ty also celebrated the achievement on his Instagram Stories, posting a video of him lifting his index finger to the camera while silencing the naysayers.

Released on February 10, Vultures 1 boasts uncredited appearances from Travis Scott, Playboi Carti, Lil Durk, Chris Brown, Freddie Gibbs, YG, Quavo, Rich The Kid and others.

The project was initially only available on streaming platforms and as a digital download through online retailers and Kanye West’s website.

Physical versions of the album on CD and vinyl are set to be released at a later point, with Ye’s store currently accepting pre-orders.

Vultures 1 debuts at No. 1 despite encountering a series of issues. The album was temporarily removed from streaming services five days after its release due to a complaint from its initial distributor, FUGA.

“On Friday, February 9, 2024, a long-standing FUGA client delivered the album Vultures 1 through the platform’s automated processes, violating our service agreement,” the company said. “Therefore, FUGA is actively working with its DSP partners and the client to remove Vultures 1 from our systems.”

The album was quickly reinstated on streaming platforms after Kanye and Ty Dolla found another distributor, Label Engine, who had previously released the singles “Vultures” and “Talking/Once Again.”
