KANYE PREMIERS "POWER" VIDEO TOMORROW ON MTV


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Rapper/mega producer Kanye West is set to premier his new video Power off his highly anticipated 4th album, formerly titled Good Ass Job, on MTV tomorrow (8/5).
In a coming video for his single “Power” that was directed by the artist Marco Brambilla, Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The Sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade. Source


Kanye wrote on his Twitter page in reference to his new video (sidebar: follow The Chick Fix on Twitter!),
"THE 'PORTRAIT OF POWER' PREMIERS THIS THURSDAY ON MTV RIGHT AFTER JERSEY SHORE...IT'S NOT A VIDEO... IT'S A PAINTING!!!"
Check out a video clip on the set of Kanye's Power video as well as more details about the video after the break!

So what can we expect to see from the Power video?
Kanye in an orgy of decadence and destruction with mostly-nude models which include Diandra Forrest, Jessica White and Irina Shayk; a video that draws inspiration from Michelangelo’s fresco's in the Sistine Chapel and a message of Nihilism (can't front, I had to, look that word up, lol!) throughout the video.

In related news, rapper Eminem will be premiering the video for his chart-topping single, Love the Way You Lie featuring Rihanna tomorrow on MTV as well, at 9 p.m./ET
