Kanye West has dropped a brand new single called ‘Champions’. Scroll down to listen.
The track, which features Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Desiigner, Quavo, Travi$ Scott and Yo Gotti, is the lead single from ‘Cruel Winter’, the forthcoming compilation album from the rapper’s G.O.O.D. Music label. ‘Cruel Winter’ is the follow-up to G.O.O.D. Music’s 2012 compilation album ‘Cruel Summer’.
West premiered ‘Champions’ during an appearance on Los Angeles radio station Real 92.3 last night (June 12). During the interview he told fans to expect a longer, “12 to 15 minute” version of ‘Champions’ featuring every artist signed to G.O.O.D. Music. He said the track features “the Avengers of rap”.
Following the radio premiere, ‘Champions’ has been officially released on iTunes and Apple Music.
During the interview, West also told fans he is planning to begin a tour in support of his ‘The Life Of Pablo’ album in September. Last week he attempted to put on a secret guerilla gig at the intimate Webster Hall venue in New York City but saw it cancelled amid scenes of chaos outside the venue.
To make amends, the city’s mayor Bill de Blasio has since offered to plan a block party with West to benefit local young people.
