"Fade" Star Teyana Taylor Releases New Music Video

More music from the artist, but even less clothing

Following her sensual and showstopping performance in Kanye West’s “Fade” music video, Teyana Taylor releases “Champions freestyle” along with an artful music video. Impossibly, it’s racier than “Fade.” This time, the singer ditches workout wear in favor of nothing but gold body paint. Throughout the video, the only thing that covers Taylor up is a facemask and some gold chains. Of note, the Sasha Samsonova-shot video was created entirely by stop-motion photography.

The song is Taylor’s take on “Champions,” a track originally by Kanye West, Desiigner, Travis Scott, and others. While the verse isn’t as impressive as Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” verse—a track that similarly pitted the woman against the men—it does prove Taylor’s potential.

If appearing in “Fade” was her relaunch point, Taylor has made an impressive second step with “Champion.”
