Near the end of "Wash Us in the Blood", West complains of an unspecified "they" trying to calm him down and evokes President Trump (of whom he's been a famous supporter) with a lyric about his distrust of the media.

Directed by Arthur Jafar, the three minute and 41 seconds long video opens with footage of Black protestors confronting a group of police officers.

That Kanye is present, swapping bars about bloodshed and genocide with Travis Scott.

The song sounds very energetic, contains a cameo from rapper Travis Scott and has been mixed by the legend of hip hop Dr Dre.

European Union officially bans travelers from the United States
European Union member nations have experienced clusters of infections since they began relaxing their own restrictions. Apart from India, the United States is now the most affected country by COVID-19 with more than 125,000 deaths.

"Wash Us In The Blood" meanwhile earned #5 on the US Spotify and Apple Music charts for Tuesday, June 30.

While West has been quiet for much of the year, the last few weeks brought a flurry of news. Wash Us In The Blood is a dig by Kanye West on humans, who are doing sins in the form of racism and other inappropriate activities.

And Kanye's and Kim Kardashian's eldest daughter North West has literally starred in it! The song, from West's recently announced tenth studio album "God's Country", is the first new music from the artist since last fall's tag-team of his own "Jesus Is King" album and the West-led Sunday Service Choir's "Jesus Is Born". "Wash us in the blood of Jesus / Holy spirit come down / We need you now", he says. And that one thing made the difference.

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