Kanye West capped off Day 2 of the ESSENCE Music Festival in New Orleans with an unforgettable evening of artistry. ‘Ye, who’s been playing festivals around the world, performed a similar set to Coachella, opening with “POWER” against a Greek art-deco backdrop. Dressed in a white blazer, jeans, and black fringe sneakers, he delivered an epic performance that included ballerinas, lasers, and fireworks. He closed with the emotional “Hey Mama,” leaving over 40,000 concertgoers in the Louisiana Superdome with a deeper appreciation for his musical genius.

According to Ryan Seacrest, a new single from Watch the Throne will arrive by mid-July with the long-awaited album to follow in August. There are also talks of a potential Kanye/Jay-Z tour to follow.
