'Closest Thing To Einstein' features Sampha and was premiered at a gig in LA
Kanye West premiered a new song titled ‘Closest Thing To Einstein’ during a live appearance in Los Angeles last night (February 23), also taking time out to publicly deny ex-girlfriend Amber Rose’s recent sex claims about him.
West dated Rose from 2008 to 2010 but there has long been animosity between the pair, with West previously saying that he “had to take 30 showers” after dating her.
Following a Twitter dispute between West and the father of her child Wiz Khalifa, Rose tweeted allegations about West’s sexual preferences, writing: “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch”.
West previously denied the allegations, now repeating his denial publicly at LA club 1Oak. “She never stick no fingers in my ass. I don’t play like that,” the rapper said during the performance. See a video of that below.
West also played a new track thought to be called ‘Closest Thing To Einstein’. It features British singer Sampha, who has previously worked with Drake and SBTRKT. Listen beneath.
West released his new album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ earlier this month. It’s the follow up to 2013’s ‘Yeezus’ and features guest spots from Rihanna, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar and more.
It has been reported that the album has failed to chart in both the UK and US after Tidal, who are streaming the album exclusively, refused to disclose figures to officials.
