We recently saw a little preview of the video for Kanye West’s “Monster,” featuring Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and Nicki Minaj, and we were all like “OMGWTF.” Today, Rihanna tweeted a picture of herself on the set of Kanye’s “All Of The Lights” video with director Hype Williams and it has us all “OMFG!!!” Cannot. Wait. For. This. Video.
If you’ll recall, Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights,” from his latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, features pretty much every person on the planet —Rihanna, Alicia Keys, John Legend, The-Dream, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Elton John (on piano), Ryan Leslie, Charlie Wilson, Tony Williams and La Roux singer Elly Jackson. And seeing as though the video is being directed by Hype Williams, who’s directed pretty much every hip-hop video on the planet, the expectations for this video are set really high. Like, Christmas-morning-when-you’re-six-years-old high.
Rihanna tweeted with the picture, “Turn up the lights in here baby, EXTRA BRIGHT b—-es!!!” Is that a little secret letting us in on what the video might entail? We can’t really get a good look at the set or, more importantly, Rihanna’s outfit for the video, but we’re going to guess it might have something to do with…lights!! I know, we’re smart like that.
