Kanye West celebrated the birthday of his late mother Donda West with the preview of his new track, “DONDA.”

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.
