With attention building for his upcoming fourth album “808s and Heartbreak” (out November 25th), Kanye West has just premiered the video for his Top 5 single “Love Lockdown”. Typical of the artier-than-thou West’s previous works, this is a pretty arresting video visually. I can see this cleaning up at next year’s VMAs…and it’s so damn refreshing to see a hip-hop video where the ass-shaking is not coming from a sea of bikini-wearing chicks. I’m just glad ‘Ye didn’t decide to do any of the dancing or dress in any of the tribal gear himself. The other thing I realized while watching this is that the song’s kind of monotonous. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see what the always entertaining Kanye has in store for us in just about six weeks.
