Kanye West Power remix anticipation was fairly high. But of course, the Kanye West Power remix didn’t have the hype of the Kanye West Power video, though the remix was longer. The new version received help from Jay-Z and producer Swizz Beatz, and had more lyrics from West himself. Still, it couldn’t have topped the weird imagery, religious implications, and puzzling action of the music video. Nevertheless, the Kanye West Power remix was still a big event for fans, as they got more music out of it.
Weeks ago, the famed rapper released one of the more artsy music videos in some time. The Power video looked more like a religious painting, while having West’s traditional flourishes. However, it was only for 90 seconds, and was more notable for the visuals than the song.
For the Kanye West Power remix, the routine was increased to over five minutes long, and was a purely audio version. Jay-Z provided the opening lyrics, and even name-dropped Taylor Swift for West. After that, the star took over, and sang a full length version of the new single.
When the original video came out, it had the kind of massive hype only West could drum up. Yet, for the Power remix, things were more measured by comparison. Although the video got a lot of buzz, it was upstaged by Eminem’s much more controversial Love The Way You Lie video that week.
Much of the attention around the Kanye West Power remix was on when it would actually come out. The original plan was to do it last Friday, yet nothing arrived, and West Tweeted that he was still putting finishing touches on it. He finally finished those touches in the early morning today, posting the link on his now-famous Twitter.
Now that the second version of the song is out, fans can focus more on West’s way with words , and his various messages. But although the Kanye West Power remix may find favor, the original video still has a much more grandiose vision, at least visually.
All of this hype is only for part of West’s new album, however. It is now due to come out on Nov. 16, and still doesn’t have an official title. There is still plenty of time for West to make a spectacle out of other new song premieres, although the bar was set high on this one. Yet, every time West sets the bar in some way, it gets topped eventually – whether for good or ill.
