Behold, it’s a new Kanye West video! Our weekends just got a whole lot better.
The new music video, directed by Hype Williams, is for his song “All Of The Lights” featuring Rihanna and Kid Cudi and as expected with a Kanye video, it’s awesome. It’s over five minutes, but none of the artists featured, including Kanye, show up until the two-minute mark.
The video opens on a young girl walking through the city (covered in snow) by herself, shot in black and white. After that enchanting little opening, the lyrics show up on screen in a burst of different fonts and colors. Finally, our man Kanye West shows up (after making us wait two whole minutes!) and soon dances on top of a cop car.
Rihanna shows in a typically revealing “shirt,” making us focus more on her body than the actual video/song/lyrics/etc. Several artists who contributed vocals to the song, but who do not appear in the video include Fergie, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Tony Williams, Alicia Keys, La Roux, The Dream, Ryan Lesli, Alvin Fields and Ken Lewis.
