Kanye West loves to shake things up and he’ll be doing just with the world premiere of his music video for “Bound 2” on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday, November 19th.

The video “may or may not” feature his fiancée Kim Kardashian , according to ellentv.com :

“After a year that included a baby girl (North!), an engagement, a new album and worldwide tour, the hip-hop all-star brings the power and flashing lights to Ellen’s set, where he will give it to her as he always does: major! He’ll undoubtedly arrive in customized style. The rapper has moved mountains since his early days as a young man in pursuit of divinity on “The College Dropout,” to a fierce leader presiding over his kingdom with his latest works, “Yeezus” and “Watch the Throne,” an album in partnership with Jay-Z. See how he stuns Ellen and the world with his new video, which will live exclusively on EllenTV.com for the day. Amen to that!”

Serving as the second single from Mr. West’s sixth studio album Yeezus , “Bound 2” was produced by Che Pope, Eric Danchild, Noah Goldstein, No I.D., Mike Dean , and the rapper himself.

The song has been hailed by fans and critics as Yeezus ‘ only remnant of his older, beloved work — his 2004 debut The College Dropout specifically.

It boasts several samples: Wee ‘s 1977 song Aeroplane (Reprise) ,” Ponderosa Twins Plus One ‘s 1971 track Bound ,” and Brenda Lee ‘s 1960 tune Sweet Nothin’s .”

Released August 28, 2013, the single has peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart and #31 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

It follows radical lead single “Black Skinhead,” which released on July 2, 2013 and has peaked at #69 on the Billboard Hot 100, #21 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and #15 on Rap Songs.

Yeezus released July 18, 2013 and went on to top the following charts around the globe: US Billboard 200 Albums, US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, UK Albums, UK R&B Albums, Australian Albums, Canadian Albums, Danish Albums, New Zealand Albums, and Russian Albums.
