Kanye West debuted his new single at the Brits - but we still don't know what it sounds like.

A significant chunk of the lyrics from Yeezy's performance during tonight's ceremony was muted due to offensive language.

The 37-year-old rapper took to the stage of London's O2 tonight to debut his new single All Day, but the most talked about aspect of his set was the fact that broadcasters were forced to auto mute most of the lyrics due to the watershed.

Viewers watching the UTV Ireland airing of the Brits took to Twitter to express their confusion at the song choice.

West was introduced by his wife Kim Kardashian, who flew to London specifically for the ceremony.

As expected, the cameras panned to his former rival Taylor Swift in the audience, who, after looking initially shocked, was spotted dancing up a storm to the track.
