Kanye West debuts two dark new songs "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" on SNL- and is his new album called "Yeezus"? Hello my darling music friends, you are tuned in to ClevverMusic here on YouTube. Kanye West has been furiously hard at work in Paris, France on his 6th solo album. On Friday, May 17th, Yeezy finally gave us the first taste of his new music with a song called "New Slaves". He launched the song with a film projection on the outside of 66 buildings around the world in ten cities including Los Angeles, New York, London and more. The track hears Kanye rap to a simple electronic beat, here's some lyrics that explain the song, "F*** you and your corporation, y'all n***** can't control me/ I know that we the new slaves, I know that we the new slaves". So according to Kanye big business has made us all slaves. Now just the next day Kanye was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live.
Kanye first performed new track "Black Skinhead" on a dark stage with only a projection behind him reading "Not For Sale" and other coupon signs flash on the screen throughout the song. The track sound features a catchy drum beat with Kanye scream-singing the lyrics, "You see a black man with a white woman/ At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong/ Middle America packed in/ Came to see me in my black skin". Seems Kanye gets more and more political with time.
Next, Mr. West performed previously heard "New Slaves" with the same black set and projection behind him as the first performance. Except this time, a close up shot of Kanye's eyes was seen on screen behind him and it was a tad creepy.
And there is more where that came from. His new album is rumored to be called "Yeezus", likely a combo of his Yeezy nickname and the world Jesus. Not surprising to us as we know he has a song named "I Am God" forthcoming as well. An Instagram post by his girlfriend Kim Kardashian confirmed the album name, take a look at this pic, we see the album cover has some sort of gold figure on it with the word "YEEZUS". The album likely will drop June 18 as Kanye previously tweeted the date and then deleted it. And guess who might be featured on the album? Will Smith! He recently confirmed the two were in the studio together a couple times. Take a listen to both of Kanye's new tracks, we'll link below, and then tell us in the comments if you like the new sound or not. I'm Misty Kingma with your music news every day here on ClevverMusic.
