A day after premiering “New Slaves” in cities across the world, Kanye West closed out the season of “Saturday Night Live” with a bang, performing new material from his upcoming album Yeezus, due June 18.
For his first performance of the evening, the G.O.O.D. Music chief channeled his inner rock star in a leather studded jacket while debuting a socially-charged song called “Black Skinhead” (view the lyrics here and here).
He returned later in the show, wearing a black scoop-neck shirt, to perform “New Slaves,” which he debuted via projection screens on buildings across the globe. The studio version of the song features Frank Ocean.
