The BET series  TALES will make a global return, with a two-hour premiere.  The debut episode, “Brothers,” brings a new and exciting twist for the series, by serving as the launchpad for an unreleased Kanye West song exclusive to the show’s soundtrack. Fans can tune-in to BET and MTV channels globally and on VH1’s international channels on Tuesday, July 2, 2019.  BET and the international channels will air the first look at 9:00 PM E.T., with MTV airing in a later time slot.

“I am beyond excited for the return of TALES. Producing this new record with my production partner Seven and working with Kanye for a song exclusively for the TALES series, has been one of the highlights of my music and TV career. I did it for my Hip Hop Culture. I wanted to give the fans something to listen to and enjoy as well as visually enjoy, and “Brothers,” the song in conjunction with this global TV premiere is precisely that moment. TALES IS BACK!!,”  the hip-hop mogul announced. Contrary to previous episodes that feature a catalog of previously released music, this season’s premiere will feature a new song, “Brothers” by Kanye West featuring Charlie Wilson. “Brothers” is produced by Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo and his production partner, Seven.
