Fainting, falls and crumbling shoes…Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 Fashion Show… Was it a Fiasco?

According to USA Today, it was a hot mess!

After unveiling his Yeezy Season 3 collection during a concert/performance art piece in February, West debuted his Yeezy Season 4 line to fans at New York Fashion Week and on Tidal on Wednesday. It’s safe to say that the show — which featured models fainting in the hot sun and music that sounded like Finding Nemo’s Dory talking to a whale — was not received as well as his last show. Here’s what happened.

The beginning.

The livestream began shortly after 3 p.m. ET with the view of a cloudy New York skyline and the sounds of The Life of Pablo, the album West debuted at his last show. And then, the stream continued with that view (which got sunnier) and more Pablo tracks for an hour before the camera angle finally changed.

One hour in.

First, we saw a self-congratulatory reel of interviews with Kanye fans grateful for the opportunity to be connected with Tidal and see West’s show. Then, it was back to the music and aerial views of New York City.

One hour and 30 minutes in.

The stream was silent for a few moments before some ambient music played. The muffled voices in the background of the track seem to indicate that the music is coming from inside the New York show. We still seem to be flying above the city.

One hour and 40 minutes in.

The music continues with the sound of a woman bellowing over low-sounding instruments. (Sometimes it sounds like horns, sometimes strings or even synth. Whatever it is, it doesn’t exactly sound pretty.)
