The Beat: Kanye West's "Power", "Runaway"

Laying low after that whole Taylor Swift debacle at the VMAs last year, Kanye West spent his time outside the US interning for fashion brands and working on some new music. "I knew I wasn't in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace." One result of Yeezy's loneliness and new-found focus? Two studio performances on SNL that's visually unlike any I've ever seen for a live show. Ballerinas, all-red ensemble, chunky gold accessories, all white background, did I say ballerinas already? Yup, if you're going to make amends, this is definitely the way to do it, Mr. West.
