Pop Star Lily Allen Calls Album Sheezus; Inspired By Kanye West

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West is now inspiring the pop world in a new manner, as he’s influenced the name of the new album by Lily Allen.

The UK pop singer’s new album is called Sheezus, a nod to West’s 2014 opus Yeezus.

She made the announcement yesterday right before performing her new song, “Air Balloon.”

Kanye’s album is a play on Jesus, the son of God in the Christian Bible. In other cultures, Jesus is considered a prophet.

“It’s a confident title choice — and a little nod to Kanye West,” Allen said in an upcoming interview on “The Graham Norton Show.” Allen didn’t expound on how it was important to name her whole album after another album.

Interestingly enough, incarcerated rapper Remy Ma used the name Shesus Khryst on a 2007 mixtape. Kanye West has not commented on the Lily Allen revelation, nor whether or not he was inspired by Remy.
