Kanye West caved to pressures from the makers of ‘Theraflu‘ (and possibly to the advice of his legal team) and changed the name of his buzzed-about new single with DJ Khaled. What’s the new title?

West has renamed the track ‘Way Too Cold.’ He announced it on the premiere of his single on New York’s Hot 97, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Def Jam later issued a press release on the renaming of the song, calling it a “creative decision.”

While that may be true, we think the makers of Theraflu may have had something to do with the matter as well. Last week they issued a statement regarding the song, telling press, “We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner. Theraflu is an over-the-counter product used to help relieve cold and flu symptoms that millions of consumers rely on.”

West also changed the single art for the song, which originally featured a topless woman with a bottle of the cough and ache remedy for her head. The new image still features a topless female, but with a blank white bottle instead of the labeled medicine. One thing that hasn’t changed on the album art? The topless woman still dons a fur coat. Sorry, PETA!
