New Video: Kanye West – ‘Power’

Published: Friday 6th Aug 2010 by Trent

Kanye West’s highly anticipated video for ‘Power’ has finally debuted. The production was directed by Marco Brambilla to support the 1st single from his upcoming studio album which hits stores on September 14th. To date, ‘Power’ has climbed to #22 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Check out the video below:

West sure knows how to leave a person speechless! That has to be the most invented use of graphics that I have ever seen in a music video. Without a doubt this is one of the best productions of the year. There is nothing else to say. Simply genius.

  15. FreshUrbanEnt August 6, 2010

    NO IT’S THE FULL VIDEO “PAINTING” GUYS. AT FIRST I DIDN’T LIKE IT, NOT CUS IT WASN’T GOOD BUT BECAUSE IT WAS SO SHORT. BUT AFTER WATCHING IT AGAIN AND GETTING OVER THE FACT THAT IT’S ONLY 1.44 MNS, I ACTUALLY THINK THIS IS KANYE’S BEST WORK TO DATE. 😀

    I’m huge kanye fan

  17. bizigyal August 6, 2010

    fackin stupid. this is the preview.
    dumbass.

  18. Kahari August 6, 2010

    Kinda scary if you ask me. That stare that Kanye does in the begining…it’s like he wants to eat your soul or something. As far as the Illumunati rumors, I think that Kayne as well as others like Rihanna, Beyonce, and Jay-Z consciously perpeturate that stereotype. I feel like the additude is like “eh, let’s give ’em something to talk about…”

  19. LUVMESUMB August 6, 2010

    Wow kanye can sure put show and all that illumi. BS needs to stop its so stupid and fake

  20. EXPOSED August 6, 2010

    KUDOS TO THE SPECIAL EFFECTS GUYS. THEY GET ALL THE CREDIT HERE. BOOO FOR KANYE. IS THIS GONNA BE LIKE AVATAR?? WHERE THE PEEPS WATCH IT FOR THE SPECIAL EFFECTS BUT THE ACTUAL SUBSTANCE IS UNORIGINAL AND LAME ASS??? PROBABLY…

  21. Soulful Roses August 6, 2010

    Why would you want to play with the devil to keep people talking? After a while, you have to sit back and do some soul searching. Figure out what God you actually serve, and were you heart lies…

    With that being said, this clip didnt sit well with. So I turned it off
    *Goes to Youtube to find a happy video* 🙂

  22. True Blue August 6, 2010

    The sound was choppy for me, did anyone else experience that?

  23. @mixedominicana August 6, 2010

    For starters….he and this “power” thing is killing me…seriously…he and other “great men” in the music industry want to see themselves as divine…or better yeah A GOD…and it’s getting frustrating bc in his position as a music artist, he does have SOME power…but he’s expecting a little too much, but I know that I’m not giving him s***. I respect his music & creativity, but when u start painting a picture (literally) of yourself as something like a religious figure, then THAT’S when we have a problem…and a line has been crossed..but that’s yeezy…nothing new.

  24. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 6, 2010

    Visually STUNNING! The imagery is PHENOMENAL!

    That stare at the beginning was kinda creepy, though.

  25. The AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    @~TeAM WeeZY~
    Agree totally – Kanye is just at the top of my league for his visuals.
    Know this is going to bring out all those devil worshipping illuminati nuts though – they probably all believe we’re all ruled by lizards from another galaxy and other crazy stuff too.

  26. Waddie G. August 6, 2010

    This is a masterpiece…the greatest music video since Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer.”

  27. True Blue August 6, 2010

    I don’t understand why it’s so short.. please tell me this is just a preview! The song is only over 4 minutes long, it’s not like he would need to shorten the song for the vid to make it more marketable.

  28. Ciara Stan 21 August 6, 2010

    This video was genius, it was a thought provoking masterpiece in every sence.

  29. GangsterA August 6, 2010

    AMAZING VIDEO BUT ITS TO SHORT A LIL SCARY BUT ITS OKY

  30. KD August 6, 2010

    The director of the video is amazing (WOW), this shits all over GaGa’s video’s imo.

  31. D August 6, 2010

    I am no conspiracy theorist at all, but its obvious that this video represents hell. Look at that stare. Notice that the setting of the video is upside down. Look at the arches at the very end they are upside down, and how the water that the women are pouring in their mouths is flowing up instead of down. so The sky is under their feet. Obviously the women with horns. The halo over his head with a dagger going through it. WTH Kanye? This is too much!

    I agree with the folks that say, yeah they could be playing on the stereotype thats placed on them, but why entertain worshiping Satan. I personally would put that s*** to rest as soon as they placed that label on me if I’m a true God fearing Christian! But thats me.

  32. im not August 6, 2010

    i didnt watch it

    and im not gonna watch any of his other videos or listen to his music.

    im done with ”musicians” trying to put images in my head that i didnt ask for.

    i wanted to get that off my chest

    *off to do my excercise*

  33. D August 6, 2010

    And why the hell should a video have people saying “Its kinda scary though” This is just too far!! And we aint talkin bout no damn “Thriller” scary here!!!

  34. That Cranberry Sauce August 6, 2010

    LOL @D! Girl, no…

    I wish y’all would research s***. Go to school. Something.

    The “dagger” above his head is the Sword of Damocles. Greek mythology, kids. Look it up and the you’ll understand the video.

  35. ico August 6, 2010

    Amazing!

  36. The truth teller August 6, 2010

    It deserves 13 MTV awards.

    Its great that Kanye is raising the bar. EXCELLENT!!!

  37. royalkev August 6, 2010

    That stare just felt kind of wrong. Kanye is so far in this thing! Anyway, the video is very creative… creepy, but creative!

  38. TheBaddestBitch August 6, 2010

    Amazing but scary

    mixed feelings about that.

  39. MrIncredible August 6, 2010

    Great graphics but all in all it was just lame. Im not easily impressed by Kanye’s simple antics and this was one of them.

  40. Fred August 6, 2010

    Why did the images in this video sort of remind me of Michael Jackson? Maybe because Michael used to like art sort of like this (close I should say but not exact). Why is this video so short?

    The one here on this site kept skipping I had to go to Youtube and watch it on VEVO.

  41. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) August 6, 2010

    What’s so scary about this, ever seen thriller?????????????

  42. TheBaddestBitch August 6, 2010

    @ Nas

    That stare at the beginning of the video is more scary than the whole “Thriller” video.

  43. Tha Phoenix August 6, 2010

    *bows before Kanye*

    He has truly taken VIDEO to another level. The graphics are incredible, and if this is what the preview is like, imagine the video in its entirety.

  44. Topman August 6, 2010

    LOL these dumb asses who think this is only a preview will be waiting a damn long time for the full video…

  45. thekiddz August 6, 2010

    Sadly, this is the ENTIRE video. Great visuals nonetheless.

  46. TheBaddestBitch August 6, 2010

    “It’s not a video, it’s a moving painting” – Kanye West

  47. TOP NOTCH DIVA August 6, 2010

    I like the video even tho I don’t undertstand it but I’m a huge Ye’ fan but I thought the song was longer than this? Ooohh… I cannot wait to see him on tour!!!

  48. attabby August 7, 2010

    i agree, this is pretty scary, but im feelin this!!! Better be a preview

  49. QUEEN IN ME August 7, 2010

    ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS WAKE UP SHEEP!!!! THIS AINT NO GAME!!!! WE ARE NOT CONSPIRACY THEORIES!!!!!JUST AWAKE, NOT BLINDED, NOR BRAINWASHED!!!!

  50. lola August 22, 2010

    If it’s all just about creativity, then why are so many popular musicians using the SAME symbolism in their videos. Kanye didn’t make up anything new. He pulled from very old symbols that have dark occult meanings. Check things out before you say it’s just art – Horus, sword of damocles, Baphomet, Mason initiations with twin columns, sword of damocles, pyramids, etc. You are being deceived…

    here’s a video of a few musicians actually saying they sold their souls to the devil. Ask yourself why anyone would say this
