Kanye West previews a snippet of his single “No Child Left Behind” in a Beats By Dre commercial featuring sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson.
The 21-year-old Team USA athlete was banned from the Tokyo Olympics squad after testing positive for marijuana use last month. She is seen preparing to run a 100 meter dash while Kanye sings:
“Back again, I used my back against the wall
Never called on y’all, Never count on y’all
Always count on God
He’s done miracles on me
He’s done miracles on me…”
Kanye used the commercial to announce his highly-anticipated album Donda set to release on Friday, July 23.
The trailer aired during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, where the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Phoenix Suns 105-98 to win its first ever NBA championship.
Kanye shared the video on his Instagram page – one of only two posts since returning to the site. The other post is a series of pictures of the rapper wearing an all-black outfit and elaborate gold chain featuring the names of his four children.
While Kanye’s reactivated Instagram page had 5.6 million followers as WENN went to press, the Yeezy star is only following one account himself – that of his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
Kanye will treat fans to snippets from Donda at a listening party at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday night, July 22.
He donated 5,000 tickets to the event to faculty, staff and students of Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, Spelman College, Morris Brown College and ITC.
