Kanye West has changed the name of his new track, the Hit-Boy produced “Theraflu,” featuring DJ Khaled and DJ Pharris, to “Way Too Cold.” Yeezy made the announcement yesterday via his KanyeWest.com website.
There are no specifics, beyond the track being available for $1.29 on iTunes, as to why he changed the name of the song. But Theraflu did go on record, as reported by TMZ, that they were none too happy about the shout out, saying they “in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner.” Also, the George Condo artwork for the single (see below), has been altered, with the original Theraflu image wiped out.
Better a quick title change, and Photoshop edit, than getting sued.
