Sha’Carri Richardson Appears In Beats by Dre Ad With Kanye West Song

Former LSU athlete Sha’Carri Richardson debuted her collaboration with Dr. Dre and Kanye West during game six of the 2021 NBA Finals.

A new Kanye West song, “No Child Left Behind,” played in the background while Sha’Carri was doing a track workout.


In the commercial, Richardson wears the recently launched Beats Studio Buds and runs 100 meters to “No Child Left Behind.”

The video was edited by West and features the line “Live Your Truth.”

The song is from DONDA, Kanye’s new album, which releases on July 23rd.

Richardson’s positive marijuana test led to the 30-day suspension which nullified her victory at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials  competition and disqualified her from the 100-meter race in Tokyo, creating a firestorm of opinions, criticism and support.
