Kanye West‘s 2016 “Champions” single has now reached platinum status. The track produced by Yeezy, A-Trak, Lex Luger and Mike Dean included a long list of cameos. The heavily collaborated song featured Gucci Mane, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Yo Gotti, Quavo and Desiigner. “Champions” was released as the lead single from the G.O.O.D Music compilation album Cruel Winter. Following the album release, Kanye was admitted for a mental breakdown making fans question if there is a difference between genius and insanity. Regardless, 2018 buzz suggests Yeezy is back on his grind. Leaks of new music have surfaced online — “Southside Serenade” and two tracks with Kendrick Lamar. Moreover, ‘Ye has been spotted in his Wyoming creative den along with many artists he often works with.

Congrats, Kanye. Watch him perform the single alongside G.O.O.D company, and listen to the full track below. As we await new music, check out promising newcomer SAINt JHN’s debut album.
