As if this track wasn’t big enough already with the endless amount of features; Lil Wayne, Drake and Big Sean have been added to the roster giving it the remix treatment.

This is said to be a rough version which has leaked, with the official set to feature even more artists. Listen to the work in progress below. Drizzy goes in!

[FRESH VIDEO] Cee-Lo Green feat. Wiz Khalifa – Bright Lights, Bigger City by wearesme

Wiz Khalifa has been added to the original version of Cee-Lo Green’s Bright Lights, Bigger City and with it comes a brand new video that would appear to have been inspired by Kanye West’s All Of The Lights, although sadly with considerably less Rihanna flesh.

Neither Cee-Lo or Wiz feature in the visuals, which are made up of footage from city nightlife, street lights and signs.

[FRESH VIDEO] Kanye West feat. Rihanna & Kid Cudi – All Of The Lights (Alternate Version) by wearesme

“Warning: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.”

After the original video was forced to bear the above warning on YouTube, as a result of pressure from UK charity organisation Epilepsy Action; Kanye West and his team have now released a re-edit of the All Of The Lights video.

Although no better than the disappointing original, it does tease with images of Rihanna posing in a lace dress at the end of the video; as if there wasn’t already enough RiRi flesh on show to get us hot under the collar! Oh and it also won’t trigger epileptic seizures; always a plus!

[FRESH VIDEO] Kanye West feat. Rihanna, Kid Cudi & Co – All Of The Lights by wearesme

After a 2 week delay; Kanye has evidently decided to punish our impatience by trying to inflict an epileptic fit through the visuals of his new Hype Williams directed video.

The opening sequence of the ‘All Of The Lights’ video sets a somewhat solemn tone; with black and white footage of a young girl walking through blighted housing on a snowy day, to the tune of the ‘All Of The Lights Interlude’. And then, BANG! It’s as if the aforementioned young girl took a right turn and walked into a Las Vegas casino on crack! And before we receive any complaints; the casino being the one on crack, not the girl.

The words of the first verse flash up on screen at lightning speed in various typeface, meanwhile Kanye is stomping on the roof of a Police car, Kid Cudi makes a cameo in that MJ jacket and Rihanna is looking as sultry and seductive as ever. Side boob anyone?

All jokes aside; if you do suffer from Epilepsy, we strongly advise you stay away. And for the rest of you; just don’t watch it with a hangover.

[NEWS] Drake talks about being dropped from Kanye’s ‘All Of The Lights’ by wearesme


It was recently revealed that Drake recorded a verse for the ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ track All Of Lights, however as most of you will have now heard, the grammy nominated Drizzy didn’t make the final cut.

Speaking to Shade 45 radio in the US, Drake was pulled up on the subject and had this to say:

“Kanye’s creative process is ever-changing. We make music differently. I make what comes to me and I hate changing it, whereas ‘Ye will change something 30 or 40 times to get it perfect. To each their own, and the change was to put all those people on it, and I wasn’t one of them. That’s completely okay.”

“I can never sit here and tell you that’s not one of my idols, that’s not one of my favorite rappers,”

“Whatever energy I’ve ever felt is irrelevant. When you ask me, ‘What do I think of Kanye West,’ I’ma always have something positive to say.”

“I feel like we can co-exist,” responded Drake, when asked about whether the energy level is not always where he wants to be. “I feel like Hip Hop is broad enough that we can both exist and give great music without feeling like it’s one or the other. I might be the only one that feels that way, though.”

Ye could quite easily have left Drake on there and sold a few more records but that’s not how he works. No one but Kanye will know why he took him off. but it was no doubt for creative reasons and we’d never question a genius!
