Kanye West teases new music ahead of album release


KANYE West will release his 10th solo studio album Donda on Friday, teasing his new music in an advert during the NBA Finals featuring US sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson, who missed out on the Olympics after being suspended for a positive cannabis test. The 44-year-old rapper will premiere the record on Thursday at a listening event in Atlanta, which will be streamed live. West previewed new song “No Child Left Behind” in an ad airing during Game Six of the NBA Finals. The commercial, scored and edited by West, shows Ms. Richardson, who had been expected to be one of the biggest draws at Tokyo 2020, at a track at night. The 21-year-old has said she used the cannabis to deal with the death of her mother. Mr. West shared a clip of the ad on his Instagram page. The album, named after Mr. West’s late mother Donda West, follows 2019’s Grammy Award winning Jesus is King. — Reuters
