Man am I grateful to see some official, HD video of this. In general, we have to stop settling for poor quality phone video uploaded to Instagram. I know that’s how it is for quickness now, but visuals like these are a reminder that this type of quality can really do an experience justice and create a stronger first impression.
Anywho, it’s Kanye West’s Fondation Louis Vuitton run during Paris Fashion Week recently and the video shows off the amazing DONDA Surround visuals that no footage before it has truly encapsulated. Every example they showed felt so close to reality and the additional screens and nature were just beautiful.
I would have loved to see the overhead angled shot during some of the nature scenes and maybe Kanye on a path walking through the forest scene. Something like that. Ideas like this are surely flowing freely amongst us all so something like these visuals is really only just scratching the surface while paradoxically being ahead of the game. ✖‿✖
UPDATE: Here is full, fan captured video of the “All Day” video that features a new song at the end (hence the strange 2nd clip I originally described yesterday.)
The 1st of 4 performances as part of a Paris Fashion Week residency at Foundation Louis Vuitton took place just hours ago and brought about a few new goodies to peep below.
For one, Kanye premiered the full video for “All Day”, directed by Steve McQueen. All that’s up right now are a couple 20 second clips — one of which is Kanye appropriately spazzing out at a rocky shot from the camera (dope) and the other is just something different. I dunno, gonna have to see that in HD with HQ audio especially.
In the actual performance, Kanye performed a mix of new songs and classics ranging from almost all his albums amidst some brand new DONDA Surround visuals. The screens are amazing and remind me of what I imagined from the 7-screen experience of the Cruel Summer film in Cannes. Videos of everything from “Wolves” to “Runaway” to an “All Day” mosh pit below.
Pusha’s back so hold out your lunch money and make it all easier. He puts down some in-your-face raps to match a bangin’ new production from Kanye West. A total head-nodder. It didn’t take long for me to be in on this. Proceed below.
UPDATE: CDQ/No Tags. Design by DONDA’s Joe Perez. And a new interview of Pusha talking on the track.
Luda’s new Burning Bridges EP in December will be the first new project in awhile from the legendary ATL rapper. Today he reveals the cover art above, done by DONDA’s Joe Perez, who most recently did Nicki Minaj’s “Bed of Lies” and Pink Print deluxe album art. Provocative imagery, for sure. Lookin’ forward to the project and now visuals as well come December 16th.
Fresh off the Instagram, Nicki Minaj reveals the deluxe version of The Pinkprint album cover. She notes that she’ll reveal the standard edition at a later date. I like the artistic approach after initially being surprised we didn’t see an Anaconda-esque, scantily-clad Minaj. (But maybe we’ll see that on the standard, ha!)
Important note though: album cover designed by DONDA. (Ahhh, now it all makes sense.)
