Dre Beats commercial aired in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Milwaukee Bucks And Phoenix Suns.
The ad, which shows Richardson running 100m in stylized slow motion with red Beats Studio Buds earphones and matching hair, also debuts a snippet of Kanye West’s new song “No Child Left Behind” from his forthcoming album DONDA, which is set to be released on Friday. West scored and edited the minute-long Beats commercial.
“No Child Left Behind.” West repeats the lyrics, “He caused me a miracle,” throughout the clip. This seems to point to God.
This is the first official hearing obtained by the general public entitled West’s next album. “Donda”… After the deceased mother. The Beats ad also served as an announcement that the album would be released on Friday.
Richardson became the most talked-about name in sports in the past few weeks after being suspended and was disqualified from the 2021 Tokyo Olympics after a positive marijuana test.
In July, Richardson was not named on the Olympics roster for the women’s 4x100m relay race, the only event she could’ve competed in after she tested positive for THC, which is the chemical in marijuana, at the track and field trials in Oregon on June 19.
The athlete, whose trials result of 10.86 seconds in the women’s 100m race was disqualified due to her failed drug test, accepted a one-month suspension beginning on June 28.
Richardson’s suspension would have ended prior to the relay so she could’ve still competed for Team USA had track officials named her on the team.
On July 1, which was the same day news of her drug test became public, Richardson tweeted, “I am human.” Then, she admitted to using marijuana to cope with the death of her biological mother, who died the week before the track trials, during an interview with Today’s Savannah Guthrie.
