Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is not slowing down the promotion behind his chart-topping Yeezus solo album nearly six months into its release and will premiere a new music video next week.
Mr. West's latest Yeezus visual will be unveiled on popular talk show host Ellen DeGeneres' Monday (November 18) broadcast.
"Guess who just told me he's premiering his new music video on my show next week? The one and only @KanyeWest! Thank you, Yeezus.," Ellen tweeted November 15. (Ellen DeGeneres' Twitter)
Despite the anticipation, there is no specific information on which visual Kanye will premiere.
Kanye West will be releasing his latest music video off Yeezus on Monday. This announcement came courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres, who said that the video will be premiering on The Ellen Show. As of now, there is no information about the video available. Kanye's Yeezus tour is set to resume November 16 in Philadelphia. Next week, he will be performing four shows in New York City, two at the Barclays Center and two at Madison Square Garden. (Complex)
Outside of his album promo, Mr. West has kept busy most recently appearing at Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday celebration in New York.
Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his 39th birthday in New York with a little help from rappers Kanye West and 2 Chainz. Because that's precisely what Jay Gatsby would do if he was a real person. "The Great Gatsby" star feted himself at Tao Downtown in New York with about 100 guests and special performances from the rappers, raising millions of dollars for his foundation. (Los Angeles Times)
Prior to the appearance, West raised eyebrows after appearing at Odd Future's second annual music carnival in California.
Tyler treated the crowd to the original version of "Colossus," featuring a much jazzier, lighter feel than the one that made "Goblin." This would have been surprise enough until the beat for Kanye West's "New Slaves" started up and an inspired West walked out on stage ripping through the hard-hitting lyrics. The crowd exploded in delight and pushed up to get a better look at the Yeezus rapper. (The Hollywood Reporter)
