Kanye West released a new music video titled ‘Wash Us in the Blood’ from his upcoming album, this powerful new visual is about systemic racism and religion and includes a lot of violent imagery.

In the music video, Kanye West has included clips of fiery confrontations between the police and Black men, people fighting each other in the streets, an unmanned drone in wartime, people struggling to breathe in hospital, as well as a clip of Ahmaud Arbery before he was killed.

The video takes a more light-hearted turn in the last few seconds as Kanye ends the clip by saying the words, “Wash us in the blood of Jesus/ Holy Spirit come down/ We need you now / Wash us in the blood”, while his daughter, North West, aged 7, is dancing at one of his Sunday Service rehearsals.

‘Wash Us in the Blood’ comes from Kanye’s upcoming tenth studio album titled ‘God’s Country’. In the track, released hours before the video, Kanye begs for the “Holy Spirit” to “come down.”

Kanye West also spends a verse taking a shot at the people who are “trying to control” him. He raps, “They want me to calm down / They don’t want me to be Kanye / They don’t want Kanye to be Kanye / They wanna sign a fake Kanye, they tryna sign a calm ‘Ye.”

‘Wash Us in the Blood’ features Travis Scott, it is directed by Arthur Jafa and mixed by Dr. Dre.

Kanye West has received both praises and criticism since Tuesday when he released his new song, especially after he congratulated his wife, Kim Kardashian, on what he said was her billionaire status amid the coronavirus pandemic that has seen millions lose their jobs.

It seems that Kanye’s tenth album may be a combination of his old style with his perspective of religion. He’s really come back with a bite to let people know what’s really been on his mind and how he sees the chaotic world we live in.

Like the visuals. But maybe the imagery is a bit too intense.

He’s just trying to get the message across, things have been hectic and no one has really been paying attention to how chaotic the world really is. Sometimes we need to see it how it is to truly understand.

This guy loves himself more than his wife. I mean, congratulating her with a picture of some vegetables? 😂

Was literally thinking the same thing! Like what are the vegetables for? Or am I just missing something? Is it a sort of to symbolize something meaningful, like what is is it man 😂
