Kanye West Video, Chris Martin

Music Video: Kanye Feat. Chris Martin, "Homecoming"

Chris Martin of Coldplay fame is a popular guy in the land of hip-hop. He popped up on a track from Jay-Z's 2006 comeback album Kingdom Come, and he teamed up with Kanye West for "Homecoming" on Kanye's most recent album, Graduation.

The new black-and-white video for "Homecoming," which features Kanye and Chris Martin (as mostly an outline of himself), is a refreshing change of pace from some recent videos that seem like frantic strobe-lit messes of neon colors. It may make some people yawn, but I find it to be a welcome change.

Plus there are random shots of Common throughout, and Common's really easy on the eyes.

So what do you think? Do you love this song? Is the video boring or kind of nice? To check it out for yourself,

He also wrote a song for Jamelia (See It in a Boys Eyes) which was pretty amazing.

I only saw a snippet of the video and I really like the idea of it. The song sounds exactly the same the whole way through it (if you click ahead in the video when watching online it doesn't sound like you missed anything)... so it might get old quickly for me. I have to give it a couple listens all the way through to better evaluate I guess.

Wow, Chris Martin isn't afraid of taking risks. He made that song with Nelly Furtado, Jay-Z and now Kanye, and all of them have been great.

I have to be honest, as obnoxious as Kanye can be, he knows how to craft a fine song. Hey.. anyone else think that at times Chris Martin sounded liked Sting? I keep scratching my head as to what the sample is.. kinda feels like an early 80's tv theme song.. I do feel Kanye's rap was like a beat off, but I'm also watching Gremlins 2 right now and not fully paying attention.. Anyhoo, loved the visual, the outline w/ images, for a cinematography geek, was awesome. And as a femme in general, nice to see a video with substance and not just booty ho's... Props once again to Kanye. Oh, and I'm going to rewatch it cause somehow I totally missed Common..shame on me!
