Kanye West to Release ‘Black Skinhead’ as ‘Yeezus’ First Single
Kanye West‘s ‘Yeezus’ album dropped without any real fanfare like a video push or commercials like his buddy Jay-Z. However, Def Jam plans to release the rant-filled track ‘Black Skinhead’ as the set’s official single.
Billboard reports that a clean version of the rock-inspired song is being service to radio DJs with an impact date around the July 4 holiday.
In addition, a video is in the works, although, there’s no word if West will appear in the visual or not.
‘Black Skinhead’ is being released at the same time that Hov’s anticipated album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ will be available, albeit, via an app to one million Samsung Galaxy users.
Despite its low-key marketing push, ‘Yeezus’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 327,000 copies pushed in its first week of release.
Meanwhile, West was spotted hanging out with baby North West’s grandmother, Kris Jenner, and shocker, he wasn’t happy to see the paparazzi.
Cheer up, Kanye!
