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.

A Black male-to-female (MtF) transgender activist called out BET for pulling a trans ad at the last minute.

At the conclusion of BET's first virtual BET Awards telecast on Sunday, trans activist Imara Jones, founder of Translash Media, took to Twitter to call out the network for pulling an advertisement that raised awareness of murdered Black MtF trans.

Jones tweeted:

"@bet pulled my ad at the last minute last night from the #BETAwards. It's hard to conclude anything other than that the platform is transphobic as @angelicaross & @lovebscott unfailingly point out. @citeblackwomen intentional invisibility is why our thoughts aren't heard."

In the ad, which was sponsored by McDonald's, Jones says, "Black trans women have a very simple message: stop killing us."

In a follow-up tweet, Jones wrote "And it's the incredible gap between what @bet said last night about being pro Black on air and what it does. But as I have written before "#BlackLivesMatter except [if] your're trans."
