Kanye West is getting more into Twitter as of late.

After apologizing to Beck and Bruno Mars on the social networking site last week, the "Only One" rapper revealed the title of his upcoming album Saturday, starting off with a tease.

"New Album title...," he wrote that night, following it up five minutes later with the name of the album, So Help Me God, and possibly the cover art for it. No other details such as when the album will drop, confirmed collaborations, etc. were revealed. Kanye's announcement comes after his release of "Only One" from the upcoming album and his performance of "All Day" at the Brit Awards last week. The studio version of "All Day" premiered on Los Angeles' Power 106 FM and New York's Hot 97 Monday afternoon following that performance, according to Billboard.

In the midst of Kanye's music news, the hip hop star also was busy giving a lecture at Oxford, where he talked about the critical acclaim for his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Nicki Minaj's influence on him and more, according to Pitchfork.

"One of the best thing about the album was Nicki Minaj, and that she kicked my a** on my own song, on the best album of the last 25 years," he said. "I was exiled from my own country, came back with my magnum opus, and I was beat by a girl." Read the full lecture here.
