Kanye West had a weird week. From Sunday night’s Grammy nonsense to rumblings that he is headed to the studio with Will Smith and Taylor Swift, no media outlet can keep West out of the headlines.

At an event live-streamed around the world today, West debuted his new line of shoes with Adidas, including the long-awaited Yeezy Boosts. What was more exciting, however, was the surprise premiere of a new song titled “Wolves” featuring artists Sia and Vic Mensa.

The event, which was shown at movie theaters all over the world, was ticket-only, and tickets were given out yesterday through a form on West’s website. The selected audience filed into theaters today and were treated to a live-streamed unveil of the shoes, with the song playing in the background.  

The song itself is nestled neatly between the brash and blunt ‘Ye we saw on “Yeezus,” and the bright and upbeat Kanye from 2008’s “808s and Heartbreak.” West, Sia and Mensa trade drawn-out verses on this ambient opener to West’s upcoming 7th solo outing.

The message board verdicts were split. Some praised West’s continued tone following the release of “Only One” and “Four Five Seconds,” but others were put off by a potentially emotional forthcoming album.

Some want to hear West rap, some want to hear him sing. To quote 2007’s “The Good Life,” “50 told me go ‘head switch the style up, and if they hate then let ’em hate and watch the money pile up.”
