Sia’s visuals are always fascinating and today’s new one for “Fire Meet Gasoline” is no different. We do see fire and gasoline meeting, but we also see Heidi Klum — a lot of her. She plays one half of a lovebird couple in a storyline that features a pretty cool, ambiguous twist towards the end. After seeing that, I was even more intrigued so hopefully you are too.
If I told you a week ago, Vic Mensa was going to be on SNL 40…
But yeah, wow. Amazing look for the young Vic as Kanye puts him on with a performance of track 01 — “Wolves”, accompanied by Vic and Sia. It was prefaced by “Jesus Walks” and “Only One” too. I’ll let the medley develop for you naturally down below, just know it’s definitely interesting… and IMHO, pretty cool. Can’t wait to hear more of “Wolves”.
Official video of the fashion show + “Wolves” in its highest quality yet (starts at 8:19).
I gotta admit, I first thought the live trumpet and military formations was a little weird but that quickly grew on me. There’s a clear continuity in the colors and style and a few pieces stand out for me.
For one, there are the Yeezy Boost Lows and the Yeezy Boots (unofficial titles). I prefer the boots seen below.
Other pieces I enjoy: the crop tops for women and literally all the camo. My free spending self would cop a camo jacket, the Boots and the Boosts.
The Kanye x adidas Fashion Show just went down in NYC and more details and previews have naturally surfaced (scroll below for the Yeezy Boost Lows.)
The music takes the forefront as Kanye premiered track 01 off his upcoming album:
“Wolves” featuring Vic Mensa & Sia.
Wow. Look at ‘Ye branching out to another Chicago artist on the rise. Without much more ado, here’s a full HQ audio preview of the song and streamed fashion show.
UPDATE: Full, CDQ as part of the new adidas Originals official video. Starts at 8:19 mark.
I’m vibing with the booming production, by Cashmere Cat & Sinjin Hawke, and ‘Ye’s autotune carries the first third of the record with Vic harmonizing on the bridge. Sia comes in wonderfully afterward. And overall, this is a message to let digest as well. Between all three artists, they describe not staying too high and wild and learning from times that they do. It’ll take some listens, but knowing Sia’s past helps piece her part together as well.
Last night, Kevin Hart hosted SNL and he brought the house down a few times: my favorite being a monologue that clearly is up his alley as a standup comedian. I also enjoyed the skit with Jay Pharoah as his illegitimate son.
ICYMI, and if you missed musical guests Sia’s interesting performances, watch ’em all below.
With Shady XV in stores today, Marshall celebrates with the release of the “Guts Over Fear” video that illustrates a parallel storyline to his come-up from nothing. Serious 8 Mile vibes as we follow a boxer try to work a day job and up the ladder for himself and his family. The story feels a little more powerful given Eminem’s verses, especially the end of his second one when the boxer triumphs. Use this as some Monday motivation above!
The brief 30 second look at Eminem’s motivational video for “Guts Over Fear” — the Sia-featured lead single off his upcoming Shady XV commemorative compilation. Both the video and the 2-disc CD drop on Tuesday the 24th. Looks like Marshall’s droppin’ the gloves for this one…
