Kanye West has previewed yet another single from his highly anticipated new album, Donda, expected out on Friday. The album, named after his late mom — who died in November 2007 — was originally set to be released on July 23.
His all-new tune, “Run to Glory,” appears in an ad for Beats by Dre that features track star Sha’Carri Richardson. The commercial premiered via YouTube on Thursday (Aug. 5) and marks the second teaser for West’s new album, following a previous Beats by Dre ad also starring the athlete.
In it, Richardson arrives in a Mercedes-Benz and appears to be perfecting her craft by practicing at an empty race track.
West is heard in the background beginning his gospel-infused song, repeatedly saying, “We’re gonna be OK.”
Also in the all-new ad, the 22-time Grammy-winner teases his second Donda listening event, which kicks off Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET. The listening event will be livestreamed on Apple Music.
West hosted his first Donda listening event live from Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 22. He’s since been reportedly living inside the stadium, where he’s working to complete his forthcoming 10th studio album.
