After being subjected to Kanye West‘s rambling non-speech during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, he finally got to the reason he was on stage. After wrapping up his almost seven-minute screed, Yeezy revealed his new visuals for “Fade.” The live world premiere of a new Kanye clip was cause célèbre enough, but it was the video’s star that broke the Internet: singer/dancer/basketball wifey/MILF Teyana Taylor.
During the video, reminiscent of Flashdance, a super-fit Teyana effortlessly dances around a gym in barely there athletic wear, flaunting her tight post-baby body. Glowing with sweat, the singer twirls and thrusts through the space, keeping our eyes glued on her funky workout and perfect abs (and ass!). Through precise workout moves and African-inspired dances, Teyana made our eyes green with all kinds of envy as we saw the results of her fitness regime.
When we thought the video was over at the three-minute mark, NBA champion and Teyana’s fiancé Iman Shumpert appears in a raunchy shower scene with the singer. The scene, complete with side-boob and the suggestion of oral transactions, could be a testament to the couple’s chemistry or Kanye’s perversion. The end of the video jolted us out of our thoughts, however, as the scene cuts to a greased up Teyana now with a cat face, along with Iman, their daughter Junie and a random flock of actual sheep.
If you’re somehow not familiar with Teyana, the songstress signed to Kanye’s label, G.O.O.D. Music back in 2012, dropped her album VII in 2014 and The Cassette Tape 1994 in 2015. Along with collaborating with West, we’ve most recently seen her join forces with bestie Chris Brown, complete her VII Unplugged Tour and now she’s back in the studio working on the follow up to VII.
We’ll leave the video for “Fade,” from Kanye’s latest album The Life of Pablo, up to your interpretation when you watch it
, which right now you can only do if you’re a TIDAL subscriber since it’s been removed from the Internets. If you have more time to kill, you can watch Kanye ramble below, too.
