"Wolves" is a song by American rapper Kanye West featuring Sia and Vic Mensa. It was produced by Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke and was originally planned to be the opening track to his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo, although it is the thirteenth track on the final version. West debuted the song on February 12, 2015 at a fashion show where he also premiered his new Adidas shoe. The presentation was broadcast live to more than 40 locations around the world. "Wolves" became the second confirmed track from the album and originally featured Sia Furler and Vic Mensa. The initial album version introduced a new verse from West and an additional outro from Frank Ocean, omitting Sia Furler and Vic Mensa's contributions. However, in March 2016, the album was updated with a new version of the song that reinstated Sia and Vic Mensa's verses. Frank Ocean's outro has been split into a separate track, titled "Frank's Track," which appears after Wolves on the track list.
"Wolves" was produced by Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke and originally featured vocals by Australian singer and songwriter Sia and Chicago rapper Vic Mensa. The song has been described as "melancholic" and "somber" with a slower beat, a minimal arrangement, and a heavily Auto-Tuned bridge. The "lurching" chorus is performed by Vic Mensa and includes the lyrics, "I'm just bad. Bad for you." Sia performs a "bluesy" rendition of West's words approximately three minutes and fifteen seconds into the song.
