WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES GOD WILL OPEN ANOTHER. THAT STATEMENT DEFINITELY HOLDS TRUE TO FORMER OLYMPIC PROSPECT SHA'CARRI RICHARDSON WHO WAS THE FACE OF DR. DRE'S RECENT BEATS BY DRE COMMERCIAL. THE COMMERCIAL ALSO TEASED A SONG, TITLED "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND", FROM KANYE WEST'S UPCOMING PROJECT DONDA.
The 21 year old track star, who had recently held the spotlight after her unfortunate suspension from the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games when her drug test returned positive, has been blessed with a slue of opportunity of late. These opportunities range from a $250,000 deal with, THC vape brand, Dr. Dabber to being the face of a teaser for Beats By Dre that featured unreleased music from Kanye West.
According to a the initial offer letter discovered by TMZ from Dr. Dabber to Richardson the company, "Considering your talent and grace over these past weeks, we would love to offer you the opportunity to work with our team as a spokesperson for Dr. Dabber." The company features products from rigs to vapes all containing the same THC that had disqualified Richardson from competing. As the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana becomes more widespread we are sure to see more companies like Dr. Dabbers reaching out to the track star.
Now her latest win includes the Beats By Dre commercial for the new Beats Earbuds which were released and announced during the NBA Finals last night. The commercial verified Kanye West has a new album coming out that may have a more soulful and heartfelt message which fits well with the melancholy, but ultimately happily concluded, fate of the Richardson. Check out the video and its release below as well as Twitter's reaction to the commercial.

In light of the continuous and climbing Covid 19 cases and precautions being announced by the leadership of the Tokyo 2021 Olympics it's safe to say Richardson seemingly dodged a bullet. The tournament is far from its grandiose self as spectators may not even be allowed in certain competition venues and competitors may find themselves sleeping on cardboard beds. Many, including global chart topping artist like Rihanna, hope the athlete finds consolation in the current state of affairs at the games as well in the various opportunities she is being blessed with.
