Kanye West last weekend debuted a new song called "Perfect Bitch" about girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Billboard reports. The tune was among a handful of unreleased tracks the rapper played during a listening party at PH-D Rooftop Lounge early Saturday morning, and West soon put to rest any questions about his source of inspiration.

"I wrote the song Perfect Bitch about Kim," Yeezy wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. 

The track features a sample of German composer Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, which also loops through a chorus that supposedly contains the line "my perfect bitch." The song also refers to West's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, the New York Daily News reports.

There's no word whether "Perfect Bitch" will appear on any of West's upcoming projects, like the long-awaited G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer, which is due September 4th.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
