Kanye West’s latest album ye only reached our ears several days ago, and opinions are still forming, however one particular feature on the album is being heralded as a standout moment.
070 Shake’s outro verse on the track “Ghost Town” (which also features Kid Cudi and John Legend) is not only one of the most sonically evocative of the album, and a well-placed compliment to Cudi’s guest verse, but Genius pointed out that 070 Shake’s appearance on the album led to a spike in people searching her name.
If you’re unfamiliar, Shake started out as a member of rising New Jersey hip-hop collective, 070, and is now signed to G.O.O.D. Music. You can find out a bit more about 070 Shake, real name Danielle Balbuena, right here.
Check out some reactions to “Ghost Town” below.

“We’re the kids that never made em proud, we’re the ones that break the rules we live to stand out. We’re the ones that never gave a fuck bout how we looked bout how we sound We never made em proud” This was the first song I ever heard your one of a kind voice on. Your tone is what captured my attention at first but once I listened to the lyrics, I felt as though I had found an anthem, one that resonated with me deeply, as all of your songs do. That was only the 3rd song you had ever recorded & it was a classic. You have a true gift Shake. I am honored to be a part of your journey. Enjoy this moment & know that tonight, you made a lot of people extremely proud. 21 years old in 12 days! You are just getting started⭐️?
