Kanye West brings out the beauty of African's traditional look and dance on 'Love Lockdown' music video.
Kanye West has premiered a music video for his single called "Love Lockdown" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday, October 7. The video starts rolling on with Kanye sitting on a couch in a white room and then a bunch of African tribe members show up from nowhere, running and presenting some traditional dance moves in a white-also scene. Near the end, two tall female figures with colorful drawings dance in front of thousands of the Africans.
Speaking of the video, Kanye admits that he "kind of embody Patrick Bateman from 'American Psycho' ". The rapper says, "You know at the end of the movie (that) he didn't really kill anyone. (I just liked) the clean aesthetic and the way he was all about labels. I wanted to express all of that in the video."
Previously, Kanye gave his fans a quick preview of his reportedly second single entitled "Heartless" from his upcoming effort "808's & Heartbreak" at T.I.'s concert held in Los Angeles on October 3. Meanwhile, at another concert on October 6, he revealed that his fourth major studio album will hit the market on November 25.
