As Kanye West took the stage on the “Saturday Night Live” Season 38 finale to debut new music this weekend, girlfriend Kim Kardashian took to Twitter to promote her man’s upcoming album, as well as confirm its release date and title.
”#Yeezus #RedYeezy’s #SNL #Tonight #NewSlaves #YeezySeason #Donda #June18,” Kim Tweeted, along with a photo of a CD case marked “Yeezus,” and a pair of all red Nike Air Yeezy IIs.
(The shoes have yet to be released. Donda is the name of Kanye’s late mother, who passed away in 2007.)
Kim’s post seems to explain a cryptic Tweet from Kanye in early May which simply read, “June Eighteen.” Fans wondered if the post was Kim’s due date, an album release date from the rapper or something else entirely.
Kanye performed two news songs on the NBC sketch show, including “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves.”
On hand to watch her daughter’s beau’s performance was Kris Jenner.
The Kardashian/Jenner clan matriarch Tweeted a picture of herself with Kristen Wiig, captioned “Backstage at SNL… 4 Sisters!” (referencing “Saturday Night Live’s” past Kardashian spoofs, where Kristen portrayed a youth-clinging Kris, who tries to assert she’s Kourtney, Kim and Khloe’s fourth sister, rather than mother).
Kris also gave a shout out to Kanye, Tweeting, “Here we go SNL!! Kanye on tonight so excited!!”
