Kanye West "Wash Us In The Blood" Early Reactions

Kanye West Returns with ‘Wash Us in the Blood’ Featuring Travis Scott

Scroll ahead to know all about it.

Artist Arthur Jafa created the artwork and directed the video, which features a barrage of visuals including police brutality protests, a dancing Breonna Taylor, and the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, as well as Kanye's own live shows.

Kanye West first unveiled the single in his cover story for GQ's May 2020 issue. The video is shedding light on the nationwide protests against racial injustice that their deaths have helped inspire. As is obvious from the title, the song continues West's recent gospel-themed music, but it's harder edged than his previous work, recalling the bruising beats of "Yeezy".

While the video has only been out for a half-hour, people are praising it, noting that this is the Kanye that they've wanted for the last few years. But he's pondering on earthly matters too. "Whole life being thugs / No choice, selling drugs", he raps, "Genocide, what it does / Mass incarc, what it does".

Wash Us in the Blood is now available through all major streaming platforms.

The new track, the first released from the born-again rapper's planned 10th album "God's Country", features lyrics with heavily biblical overtones, in line with his musical turn to Christianity in recent years.

As of this writing, the record does not have an official release date.
