Kanye West was joined on stage by his daughter North in Paris on Sunday night after she was named as one of the youngest ever Billboard Hot 100 stars.

The daughter of Kanye and Kim Kardashian, 10, earned her first entry into the charts last week after featuring on her rapper dad’s new track, Talking/Once Again.

The song is one of the tracks on Kanye’s new album Vultures 1, which is a joint project with Ty Dolla $ign and comes after the artist claimed he ‘couldn’t book a gig for a year’ following a series of bizarre anti-Semitic rants.

The father-daughter duo put on an electrifying display as they performed their song at the Accor Arena in the French capital at the start of Fashion Week in the city.

Kanye was typically bizarrely dressed in a black Halloween hockey-style mask, which he wore with leather jacket and matching trousers.

Meanwhile, North was wearing a fur trapper hat with a baggy bomber jacket, a graphic print T-shirt, trousers and chunky boots.

North’s mother Kim was her biggest fan earlier this week as she praised her new achievement – becoming one of the youngest music artists to ever chart on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Kim, 43, re-shared a tweet from Chart Data that read, ‘North West earns her first ever entry on the Hot 100 this week with TALKING. She becomes one of the youngest artists to ever chart, at age 10.’

Kim wrote on her Story, ‘My baby!.

Earlier this month, the YZY designer debuted the music video for the single TALKING / ONCE AGAIN, which included North.

At the top of the track, she sings: ‘It’s your bestie. Miss, Miss Westie. Don’t try to test me. It’s gonna get messy. It’s gonna get messy. Just just bless me! Bless me!’

Fans have gone wild over the budding young star, whose cameo on the project was first revealed during an album listening party in Miami last December.

At the time, she joined her father and Ty Dolla $ign, 41, on stage to sing and dance along to her verse.

While North’s star is only rising, Kanye admitted he has been struggling commercially and was unable to book a gig for a year.

Kanye shared he that he was having trouble booking concert arenas, and seemingly suggested it was because of his anti-Semitic rants on social media.

He shared a video and a text post earlier this month, where he revealed he’s been having a difficult time booking venues, pointedly adding, ‘And you know why that is.’

Kanye  — who was recently called a ‘very charming anti-Semite’ by Bill Maher — also seemed to compare his plight to that of Rock n’ Roll legend Elvis Presley.

Kanye said the only arena he’s had luck booking has been United Center in his hometown Chicago, weeks before he performed in Paris with North.

‘We just sold out the United Center in seven minutes, and I just want to express to everybody out there to see if it’s anyone that can help with this. It’s the only arena that I had access to in the past year,’ he said.

‘And when I call, people say there’s no avails for me and you know why that is,’ he added, seemingly inferring business owners have blacklisted him due to his views.

‘So if there’s anybody out there that can help with this, please do,’ Kanye pleaded with his followers.

He then shared a text post that read: ‘I have not been allowed to perform in a year feels like the Elvis Presley movie.’

It’s unclear how Kanye compares his situation to Elvis’, though he might be alluding to the King of Rock and Roll being censored, banned from shows, and threatened with jail for his provocative performances.

He has been away from the music scene for a while, with his last studio album, Donda, released in 2021.

Kanye apologized in December his various anti-Semitic outbursts, which even saw him expressing support for Adolf Hitler, and resulted in him losing a string of lucrative endorsement deals and being dropped by his talent agency.

The rapper issued his apology in Hebrew on his newly-reactivated Instagram page in the early hours of December 26.

‘I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions. It was not my intention to hurt or demean, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused,’ the apology read in part.

‘I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding More in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity.’

Kanye was accused of going into yet another anti-Semitic tirade during an event in Vegas, on top of being accused of using similar language in his latest track, Vultures.

Kanye told a crowd in which he claimed ‘all the rich f***s’ in the room have their kids in ‘Zionist schools’ and that daughter North, 10, had destroyed couches in her house so she could join him on tour.

Just days before that unhinged rant, West was branded a ‘disgusting human being’ by some fans after he wore a KKK-style hood in Miami.

Vultures features the ‘offensive’ lyrics: ‘How am I anti-Semitic? I just f***ed a Jewish b****.’

In 2022, West made anti-Semitic comments in interviews and social media, including an October Twitter post in which he said he would soon go ‘death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,’ an apparent reference to the U.S. defense readiness condition scale known as DEFCON.

He had previously suggested that slavery was a choice and called the COVID-19 vaccine the ‘mark of the beast,’ among other comments.

He also took heat for wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ T-shirt to Paris Fashion Week and putting models in the same design. 

In 2020, Ye’s then-wife Kim said that the rapper has bipolar disorder, a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings.
