Kanye West Debuts New Songs at NYC's The Box

Kanye West Debuts New Songs at NYC's The Box

Kanye West performs a dynamic concert for about 200 industry insiders at the Lower East Side hotspot The Box in New York City on Thursday night (August 12).

Guests were alerted about the secret show late Thursday evening. The location wasn’t even announced — you had to call a special number to find out the address!

It was a classy affair as all guests had to dress up — ladies in dresses and gentlemen in hard bottoms and a suit jacket. No exceptions. (Kanye‘s been initiating a fashion movement dubbed “Rosewood,” which means wearing sharply tailored suits all day.)

Was all the fuss worth it? Hell yeah!

The 33-year-old hip-hop superstar kicked off the show around 1:30AM and proceeded to perform stripped-down renditions of hits including “Power”, “Good Life”, and a freestyle to “Say You Will.” Check it out below!

John Legend provided backing vocals and piano accompaniment. Kid Cudi, Mr. Hudson, music video director Anthony Mandler, and Estelle — who hopped on stage for an impromptu performance of “American Boy” — were also in attendance.

“Tonight was absolutely magical,” Estelle tweeted.

“GOOD music is most definitely in the building, New York City,” John added. “It’s gonna be a night to remember.”

“Hell of a night, hell of a life,” Kanye tweeted the morning after.

it’s time for KW to come back, he was /may still be a rude jerk but should not be ostracized for life
Jesse James and Rep.Wilson did far worse
