When Kanye West released his newest song “Theraflu,” we heard the rapper confess his love for rumored girlfriend Kim Kardashian and diss her estranged husband Kris Humphries.
But his lyrics of the song are no longer the only aspect of it making headlines, as he has just announced that he’s changing the title of the song from “Theraflu” to “Way Too Cold.”
“I changed the name of the song THERAFLU to WAY TOO COLD and you can buy it now at KANYEWEST.COM,” he tweeted.
The reason for the name change, E! Online reports, is that the medicine brand’s manufacturers, Novartis, weren’t happy with the rapper using their name for his song.
"Novartis Consumer Health in no way endorses or approves of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner,” they said in a statement earlier this month.
HipHopDX reports that the song, which is featured by DJ Khaled and DJ Pharris, also got some new cover art, which used to show a picture of a bare-chested woman with a bottle of Theraflu as a head.
However, now that Theraflu is being removed from the song in its entirety, the cover art shows the same picture just with the label of Theraflu blanked out and it now just shows a white bottle as the woman’s head.
