Kanye West did not perform during Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, but there was a musical element to his appearance.
After delivering a speech that touched on numerous topics — his feud with Taylor, gun violence, the need for role models — but seemed to lack a clear thesis, West turned the audience’s attention to a video for his song “Fade.”
The sexually provocative clip features a scantily clad Teyana Taylor and her significant other Iman Shumpert.
Taylor had actually hinted at the clip Sunday morning, Tweeting “FADE.”
Billed as a TIDAL exclusive, MTV made the video available on Twitter:
