Meanwhile, HipHop-N-More reports the song is already available on select international streaming services, including Russia’s Yandex and Japan’s biggest domestic music streaming service, Line Music. Kanye debuted “Hurricane” during his live-streamed listening event from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Thursday night, collaborating with JAY-Z, Young Thug, Pusha T, Playboi Carti, Lil Durk, and more. “Hurricane” has been around for at least three years and has gone through several changes.
