Clocking in at just over two minutes, the teaser features Donda reciting lines from the first and second verses of the KRS-One hit, “Sound of da Police.” Unlike the original track, however, “DONDA” offers a melancholic yet slightly uplifting feel as she speaks over a choir-based sonic backdrop. The rapper comes in and the visual shows behind-the-scenes footage of the two having a good time together and honoring her memory before the preview abruptly cuts.
Watch the preview of “DONDA” on Twitter below.
