Kanye West says he doesn't care about radio singles, yet here one comes. "Black Skinhead" will serve as the first official release from "Yeezus," and the rapper will film a music video to accompany it.

The radio-friendly version of "Skinhead" is currently being sent to DJs, and the video is planned for a debut in time for the Fourth of July weekend, according to Billboard.

The announcement comes after the marketing campaign for "Yeezus" centered on videos being projected on buildings' walls. No singles were released prior to the album, and the first time we heard "Skinhead" was during West's performance on "Saturday Night Live."

"When you listen to radio, that isn't where I want to be any more. And, honestly, at this point, I could give a f--k about selling a million records," West announced June 10 during his performance at New York's Governor's Ball.
