Of the many standout tracks on Kanye West’s acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the dreamy “Devil In A New Dress” has the distinction of attracting so many fans that it’s been sampled repeatedly already — Jay-Z protege and our recent guest J. Cole borrowed it for the song “Villematic” from his excellent Friday Night Lights mixtape, and just the other day Mr. and Mrs. Alicia Keys snagged it on their new jam “Speechless”. So isn’t it about time for a video? Yes — but ‘Ye isn’t quite ready yet. So check out this very well-crafted unofficial clip, directed by Yonie. Wait, is that Runaway‘s Selita Ebanks?
Ok, no it’s not. But whoever it is, she perfectly captures the devious (but sin-sational) quality that ‘Ye raps about in the track.
Should Kanye make an official video for this song?
