Teyana Taylor (Barely) Covered in Gold Leaf in 'Champions' Freestyle Clip: Watch
If it's possible, Teyana Taylor is even less covered up in the freestyle video for Kanye West's "Champions" than she was in the "Flashdance"-inspired viral clip for "Fade." In the just released two-minute stop-motion clip created entirely with photos and shot by photographer Sasha Samsonova, the G.O.O.D Music siren is dressed only in strategic bits of gold leaf while dancing in front of a grey background and wielding a pair of automatic rifles.
Taylor, draped in gold chains, covers her face in a black balaclava mask as she sings: "I've been getting money/ Where the hell you been?/ No album out and somehow I was getting paid... Champions, we run the city/ No. 1, they fallin' from the top/ Round and round we go." The singer/rapper appeared on hook alongside Travis Scott for the first single from the anticipated Cruel Winter collection.
It's been a busy month for Taylor, who caught a lot of eyes in the "Fade" video, and followed that up by announcing a pair of gigs on VH1 shows. Director Samsonova posted a series of video outtakes and stills on Instagram.
