Watch This Now: Kanye West – “Power”

“I guess every superhero needs his theme music…”

Kanye West is back. And how! After storming Facebook to perform brand new tracks acapella and releasing one of the best singles of the year thus far in “Power”, it seemed only natural he add to that with a mindfuck of a music video to go with it. Or, to mind fuck you even further, is it REALLY a music video? “IT’S NOT A VIDEO”, Yeezy warned via his super awesome new Twitter account. “IT’S  A PAINTING.”

Is he right? Yeah, sorta. But it’s a moving painting. It stretches out to quite literally godly proportions, and you notice different things with every viewing. The major problem, however, lies in the fact that nearly all of the song itself has been edited out – the video goes for less than two minutes! I’m not sure if this means it’s just a trailer for something bigger and better, or perhaps he’s done the same shock-cut thing he did for his astounding Flashing Lights video a few years back. Whatever it is, it’s provocative and it’s fucking huge. Like you’d expect any different from Kanye, right?
