Late Sunday night, Kanye West took it upon himself to grace the world with a cut from the upcoming Cruel Winter, the G.O.O.D. Music sequel that fans have been anticipating ever since the release of Cruel Summer in 2012. He had previously premiered "Champions" on Los Angeles' Real 92.3 earlier this month and joined Big Sean onstage to perform it live, but this is the first time it's been available to stream and buy.

"Champions" features the recently released Gucci Mane, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Quavo, Desiigner, Travis Scott, and Yo Gotti. We're still waiting for the 12-to-15 minute version featuring EVERY G.O.O.D. Music artist that he promised earlier.

And, as Consequence of Sound points out, the "Champions" artwork looks very similar to the Arctic Monkeys' album cover for Suck It and See.

Listen to the track below, and then check out our Kanye Effect video below:
