North West Features in New Kanye Song, Music Video

Why is North West in a Kanye West music video?

Late last year, Kanye West threatened to release new music even though his anti-Semitic rants have alienated major record labels and millions of former fans.

But he just released a new song and music video. And her daughter North is the guest star.

Kim Kardashian seems to approve, dividing fans. Is she ignoring Ye Ella’s many bad actions or is she simply being a supportive mother in bad circumstances?

North West appears in her father’s music video.

10-year-old North West (who turns 11 later this spring) made her debut in Kanye West’s song and music video, “Talking/Once Again.”

The song is already a collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, who many may know for his participation on Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home.” Ye released the song and music video on Wednesday, February 7.

“I love it here / We’re taking over the year for another year / It’s your best friend, miss, miss Westie,” North depicts during the video. “Don’t try to test me / It’s going to get complicated / Just bless me.”

As for the music video itself, which you can watch below, North braids her hair.

Kanye West hopes people watch his music video

He chose not only to post the video on YouTube, but also to share the footage on social media.

By Thursday morning he had won thousands of tastes on YouTube and a couple million on his personal Instagram page.

“TALKING / ONCE MORE Directed by D’INNOCENZO BROTHERS,” Ye wrote in the caption. “Cinematography BY MATTEO COCCO.”

Yes, Kanye West has a new song. But anyone curious enough to see it has to compare that to knowing that he is supporting a very bad man. The world is complex and view counting is a form of voting.

The single is from Kanye’s upcoming album, vultures. The album comes out on Friday, February 9.

vultures will include a series of collaborations. In case anyone was wondering if Ye had developed any sort of moral judgment in recent months, one of the collaborations is with Chris Brown. That’s not a new anti-Semitic tirade, but it’s not moral progress either.

Many critics feel that collaborating with a notorious bastard is bad, but it’s no surprise. Not after Kanye shelled out thousands of dollars to known white supremacists in recent years. Nobody expects good things from him.

How does Kim Kardashian feel about North West appearing in Kanye’s song and music video?

“Miss Westie,” Kim Kardashian wrote on her own Instagram Story alongside a now-deleted clip of North from the music video.

Previously, Ye had teased North’s involvement in planning the video, referring to her as “her best friend, Ms. Westie.” However, you wrote it all in capital letters.

At that point, a number of moments and images that he and North clearly considered did not appear in the video. Many ideas never see the light of day; That happens with any form of art.

An inside source spoke with The US Sun about Kim Kardashian’s feelings regarding North West’s involvement in her disgraced father’s music.

“Kim has been very supportive of North getting involved with her dad’s new music,” a source reported, “and was totally fine with her recording a video with him this week.”

The source added, “Kim even showed up to the shoot at her Calabasas office before heading to Nobu with Ye, North and her little friends who are also in the promotion.”

“North had planned it all with her dad and created her own storyboard,” the source detailed. We saw it a lot on social networks.

“And,” the source noted, “Kim knows how much he loves being involved in the creative process.”

North has a lively personality and a lot of creativity. Despite… many concerns about her choices, it’s good that Kim and Ye are fostering her passions and encouraging her.
