Kanye West - ‘Bound 2 (Live on Later…with Jools Holland)’ (Watch)
18 Sep 2013
Kanye brings one of the Yeezus highlights to Jools Holland's flagship show.
Kanye's messiah phase has been nothing if not entertaining, and his recent TV appearances that showcase 'Bound 2', one of Yeezus' highlights, have only gone to reinforce his own self-aggrandising image. Again emphasised by those tight-zooms, with the rest of the studio, and West's backing band, made invisible, Kanye cuts an intimidating figure in a typically High Fashion outfit.
Similar to the live debut of the track on Jimmy Fallon last week, West performed on the season premiere of the latest Later…with Jools Holland last night, bringing the indomitable Charlie Wilson along for the ride, too. Though perhaps the most obvious choice from the polarising and oft-extreme Yeezus to bring to UK TV, Kanye can still be commended for resurrecting some of that old school soul sound that marked his first emergence on the scene as something pretty special.
