Is Kanye West shedding tears over past regrets? Probably not, but the rapper and mogul dropped his new video “Wolves” today (July 29) and he’s depicted crying throughout the seven minute affair.
“Wolves” borrows from all the worlds West finds most interesting these days: himself, fashion, himself, his wife and, last but not least, himself.
In between shots of models navigating a kind-of catwalk in a darkened room, a close-up of West’s face shows him crying. The emotion comes as he sings about how much he loves the song’s unnamed “you” while the video cuts to Kim Kardashian wearing the sparkling Balmain gown she wore for the 2016 Met Gala. Throughout the video, West dons the elaborately bejeweled jean jacket he wore to the same event.
Eventually the models reflect West’s emotion, crying as they continue to walk back and forth, and he moves among them. The video appears to coincide with Balmain’s newest campaign. Two days ago, the Paris fashion house shared few black and white photographs of models crying, reported Stylecaster.
“Wolves” is nowhere near as provocative as West’s “Famous” video, but it continues to display the artistic side West has been cultivating over the past couple years. The track appears on West’s latest album The Life of Pablo.
