Kanye West appeared on Ellen Tuesday morning and premiered the video for “Bound 2” off of his latest Yeezus album.
The video features West’s fiancé, Kim Kardashian, riding/laying on a motorcycle – sometimes, topless – as the pair make out on occasion and ride the bike in front of a screen playing stock video footage of epic scenery. It’s overall, pretty lackluster but a co-worker of mine points out that this video may have purposefully been done this way to call out other artists who pass mediocre videos like this as art.
You can also take a listen to Kanye and Ellen’s one-on-one interview, which focuses mostly on Kardashian and brand new daughter. DeGeneres couldn’t help but point out the vulgarity on the Yeezus album – “Wash that mouth out with soap!” Oh, Ellen.
