The David Bowie approved songstress, who seemed relaxed and was frequently conversational on-stage, then delivered the world-premiere of a new song called Homemade Dynamite, according to Pitchfork. It's set to Kendrick Lamar's new single Humble, which will be the song that you'll hear throughout the games on ESPN. Head to Kendrick's website to take a look and pre-order. The visuals feature Don Cheadle giving the rapper a lie detector test before the two go back and forth with the fast-paced lyrics. "That's why I said I think he's doing something later on, or he might be doing something for his show, but there's a lot of stuff that I put out there".

DNA isn't the only track on Kendrick's new album DAMN.to feature Rivera's on air criticism - the news clip also featured at the end of the opening track BLOOD, while the Poetic Justice rapper addresses US network bosses and Geraldo directly on the third tune, YAH.
