“I guess every superhero needs his theme music.”

It apparently doesn’t take long for the esteemed rapper to get his message across. That, according to Entertainment Weekly, is how West’s new song “Power” starts.

Billboard reported last April that West had been spending months in Hawaii working on a new album, with guest rappers including the likes of Q-Tip, RZA and Pete Rock. The new EW report says that West’s label has been silent about “Power,” making it uncertain as to whether the song is at all finished, or related to his next album.

West has been in relative obscurity since last September, when he interrupted country music star Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. If that moment sticks in your memory, view TIME’s Top 10 Outrageous Kanye West Moments.
