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.

Mariah Carey | 1995

Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
