Kanye West stands tall on the car hood, RiRi teases fans with her revealing outfit, while Kid Cudi casually sings with his back to the camera.
Instead of releasing "Monster" music video which leaked last year in its unfinished form, Kanye West chose to drop visuals for all-star single "All of the Lights". Featuring Rihanna and Kid Cudi, it sees Kanye rapping his verses on the hood of a police car, RiRi wearing a black revealing top while peering seductively to the camera, and Cudi singing the bridge with his back to the lens.
The music video is directed by Kanye's longtime collaborator Hype Williams. The other featured guests in the song which do not make cameos in the clip are credited in animated strobe-light letters. They include Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Alicia Keys and The-Dream.
Kanye lists the star-studded single in his latest studio album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" which has been released since November 2010. He pays homage to the opening credits of Gaspar Noe's 2009 French film "Enter the Void" in some portions of the music video.
