Kanye West

Kanye West has promised that the first taste of his forthcoming album ‘God’s Country’ will be a track called ‘Wash Us In The Blood’, with a video coming later today.

The video will be directed by filmmaker, cinematographer and contemporary artist Arthur Jafa, whose acclaimed 2016 work ‘Love is the message, the message is Death’ incorporated West’s track ‘Ultralight Beam’.

Jafa, who has worked on music videos for Solange and Devendra Banhart, as well as films including Spike Lee’s Crooklyn, revealed he was working with West back in May.

While in conversation with French fashion designer and film producer Michèle Lamy, Jafa revealed he was directing a video for the rapper.

When asked if the video was for West’s Sunday Service project he said: “It’s from his new record, it’s called ‘God’s Country’ and this will be like the first single, I guess.”

Earlier today, meanwhile, a new mural from GAP featuring a handwritten note from Kanye West appeared in Chicago.

It comes after the rapper penned a ten-year deal with the manufacturer to create new affordable clothing line ‘Yeezy Gap’.

“Thank God. Hi Chicago, it’s Ye,” Kanye wrote on the outside of a newly redeveloped GAP shop in his hometown.

“This is the Gap Store I used to shop at when I would drive my Nissan from the Southside,” the note says. “So Blessed. I thank God and I am so humbled at the opportunity to serve. I put my heart into the color palette and every detail.”

Beatles girlfriends: Who were the Beatles dating before they got famous?

“It had been the same with other girlfriends I’d had. There was something the matter with me.”

Despite these difficulties, Cynthia and John got married, after she became pregnant with their son, Julian Lennon.

Speaking about how Cynthia felt about their marriage when Beatlemania hit in her 2006 book, John, she said: “I was usually dismissed as the impressionable young girl who fell for him, then trapped him into marriage.”

Cynthia also claimed she was told to pretend she was someone else to keep her marriage to John secret in their early days, telling NPR: “I was asked many times if I was John’s wife, and I had to refuse and say, ‘No, no, I’m somebody else.’”

Julian was born on April 8, 1963, but John said unsavoury things about him in his 1980 interview with Playboy.

Here to slay! Viola Davis is on board with one fan’s tweak to the Kylie Jenner cameo in Cardi B‘s “WAP” music video.

“Who did this? 😩🤣😍 #HowToGetAwayWithWAP,” the 54-year-old Oscar winner wrote via Instagram on Sunday, August 9, alongside an edit of her face on the 23-year-old reality star’s body.

Taraji P. Henson, Questlove, SZA and more stars couldn’t contain their laughter in the comments of Davis’ post. “Hahah but why do I love it 🔥😂,” Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Porsha Williams wrote.

The most supportive comment of all, however, came from the 27-year-old “Bodak Yellow” rapper herself. “I’m so fan out right now ya don’t even know,” Cardi tweeted on Sunday, sharing the hilarious edit on her own feed.

On Friday, August 7, Cardi broke the internet with the video for her latest single with Megan Thee Stallion. Jenner was one of many famous faces to appear in the visual, along with Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto and Rubi Rose. Despite the fierce female empowerment on display in the video, fans weren’t too happy with the decision to include the Kylie Cosmetics founder in such an otherwise diverse group of women.

“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door,” one fan tweeted about the video on Sunday. “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”

Cardi, however, was quick to fire back at the negativity surrounding Jenner’s cameo, noting that the makeup mogul was “so lovely” to her daughter, Kulture, and her sister, Hennessy, at Stormi Webster‘s birthday party.

“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f–kin ass off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense?” the Grammy winner replied. “The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass. … Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about. This is not about f–kin race.”

John Lennon Elton John: Did they ever collaborate? Story behind Sir Elton and Lennon songs

Published

By

However, John and Sir Elton’s collaborations were few but mainly consisted of the pair contributing their musical talents to each other’s work.

First, Sir Elton asked for his friend’s help on a Beatles cover, and in 1974 John helped Sir Elton form his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

The B-side to this track was One Day at a Time, by John Lennon, and thus began a beautiful partnership.

Of course, John was not going to appear on the track in a normal way, and instead, he was credited as Dr Winston O’Boogie, with Winston being John’s middle name.
