Kanye West has had quite an interesting past few months. After producing 5 albums including his own this past summer he announced yet another album entitled “YANDHI” which was set to drop September 29th – now November 23rd. With a small promo video posted on his social media backed by a snippet of a potential song on the album fans awaited what he would do next.
The first song he performed was his most recent single “I Love It” featuring Lil Pump. Dressed in Fiji and Perrier bottle costumes the duo danced around awkwardly and got past pretty much ALL the censors. Surrounded by neon lit walls with a large projection of Candace Owens opening and closing the track with her lines from the track, those completely unfamiliar with Kanye’s music may feel even more hate for him than before.
His second song titled “We Got Love” featured fellow G.O.O.D Music artist, Teyana Taylor. The duo performed using a much more minimalistic approach with no stage design and some creative camera movement. Perhaps the most striking moment of the performance was when they both stopped singing AND rapping to let the spoken word outro of the track play and stood still.
In a surprise third performance to close out the episode and accompanied by Kid Cudi and 070 Shake respectively, he performed “Ghost Town” a standout track from his album “Ye”. Definitely the strongest of the performances with live instrument accompaniment and chemistry between the trio, it was rather unfortunate that it was cut in the middle of 070 Shake’s passionate outro.
