Kanye contributed one verse to the track on which he discusses his career and other struggles:

“I decided not to use my color as a handicap/ He a designer, artist, producer, and he rap/ Never found virtue from patience/ In a dark room just pacin’/ Precious time is just wastin’/ You do not know what we facin’/ I cannot be complacent.”

Mary’s album drops April 28. Listen to “Love Yourself” here:
