Kanye West’s “Devil In A New Dress” Is Blessed With An Unofficial Video

Dec 29th, 2010 // 3 Comments

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?

  1. Really awesome video. Loved the split-screen techniques/ ending. I made a video of my own for “Hell Of A Life.” You should check it out!

  2. That was very well done, depth and mystery I like it. If more unofficial videos start looking like this, thats a trend I can get on board with.
