Kanye West used his four minutes at the 2016 VMAs to reveal “Fade” with Teyana Taylor.

Teyana Taylor is the face that leads everything in Kanye West’s new video for “Fade”. Premiered during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, The Life Of Pablo track is backing music for Taylor to show off not just her amazing curves, but her dance moves as well. Unlike the videos for “Famous” and “Wolves”, West subtracts himself completely from the video, allowing the VII singer/dancer to shine.

With a homage to Flashdance and small hints of Rosie Perez’s opening from Do The Right Thing, “Fade” also includes a steamy shower scene between Taylor and her husband, NBA guard Iman Shumpert. The closer is the kicker, though, with Shumpert, Taylor and their daughter Iman all together while Taylor is a cat lady and they’re surrounded by sheep. It wouldn’t be a Kanye video if there wasn’t a bit of sexuality and the broaching of spirituality. It’s a conversation piece for two reasons: Taylor’s insane fitness and the final scene. In other words, exactly what Kanye wanted to pull off when he had the vision for “Fade”.
