Kanye West treated music industry insiders to a special preview of his forthcoming album on Thursday, August 12 when he put on a secret show in New York, backed by John Legend on the piano. The rap superstar took to the stage at The Box club to perform a mix of old hits and new songs - with his pals Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson and Estelle watching from the audience.
Estelle even jumped onstage and took charge of the mic to sing her chart smash "American Boy" with West, while the hip-hop hitmaker also showed off recently completed tunes such as "Mama's Boyfriend", as well as a freestyle to his 2008 album track "Say You Will".
West is set to release his as-yet-untitled fifth studio disc in November.
