Kanye West released his dark music video for his single “Closed On Sunday”. It’s fitting that Kanye released the visual on Thanksgiving Day since it’s basically a plug for Chick-fil-A fast food restaurants.
The single is off his newly released platinum album Jesus Is King, which he describes as “an expression of the gospel.” Listen to Jesus Is King here.
The video opens with Kanye watching over his wife, Kim Kardashian-West and their children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, as they sleep on a rock formation in the desert.
In the next scene we see a caravan of light armored vehicles arriving in the desert, ready to do battle against unseen forces. The music video has an apocalyptic end-of-days tone to it.
After taking group portraits, Kanye climbs a rock formation to commune with God. “Follow Jesus, listen and obey,” he raps. “No more livin’ for the culture, we nobody’s slave.”
I pray to god that he’ll strengthen my hand
They will think twice steppin’ onto my land
I draw the line, it’s written in the sand
Try me and you will see that I ain’t playin’
Now, back up off my family, move your hands
I got my weapons in the spirit’s land
I, Jezebel don’t even stand a chance
Jezebel don’t even stand a chance
Everyone’s favorite part of the video is the final shot – when little North screams “CHIC-FIL-AAAAA!”
