Kanye West has kept his musical self quiet recently, recording latest album 'Yeezus' in Paris, but it seems like some tracks haven't been kept as secret as he'd hoped, with the rapper's new song 'New Slaves' appearing to have been leaked online.
The Stronger star teamed up with Frank Ocean for his latest musical offering, which will also appear on his upcoming LP.
A 72-second-long clip of the studio version surfaced online ahead of its official unveiling later this month, but Kanye's people must have been quick to jump to the rapper's defence and remove the song from the internet.
Kanye is apparently confident that his forthcoming new album will be a huge hit as he has reportedly banned fans from pre-ordering the record, instead making them wait until the day of release to get their hands on the album.
The 'Clique' rapper is believed to be releasing his sixth studio album on June 18th with 'Yeezus' his first solo album since 2011's critically-acclaimed 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.'

While most artists make their upcoming records available for pre-order ahead of the physical release or download date, it seems Kanye is keeping the anticipation buzzing as a close friend of the rapper has hinted that it won't be available until the official date.
A.P.C. Paris' Jean Touitou, who is believed to be a pal of Kanye's, tweeted a poster with the words: “Yeezus. New Album From Kanye West. No Pre Order Please Purchase. June 18,” in large black letters surrounding an image of the CD in the middle.
A tracklisting for 'Yeezus' leaked online this month, showing a star-studded record with features from John Legend, Frank Ocean, Tyler, the Creator and James Blake.
