Earlier this month we squealed and clapped our hands appropriate below our chins even though watching Master of None costars Eric Wareheim and Aziz Ansari dance it out and consume fancy Italian pasta to the tune of Kanye West’s incredibly polarizing (but irresistible) new song, “Renowned.” Consequence of Sound reported this morning that this incredible frivolity had been dubbed the official music video for the song, by purchase of Kanye West.
This report turned out to be false, but Kanye’s staff later reached out to Vulture and emphasized that Kanye “thinks it really is great.” In light of The Life of Pablo ‘s bizarre, months-prolonged rollout, the option would not have appeared that strange. Compared to passing an auxiliary cord around Madison Square Garden and editing tracks that have been out in public for weeks, it would be rather tame. Cute, even! Speaking of cute, let’s watch this adorable ode to gnocchi and Rihanna 1 more time. The reality that this is not the official video is bad information for Aziz, Eric, and dreamers everywhere. On the vivid side: perhaps this implies a true music video from Kanye is in the functions?
