Teyana Taylor's NSFW "Champions" Music Video Puts "Fade" To Shame [Video]

G.O.O.D. Music's Teyana Taylor is keeping all eyes glued to her. A week after shocking fans with a must-download "Fade" music video performance, she has come through with another NSFW visual in "Champions."

Tey's latest visual candy premiered Tuesday (September 6) and features Taylor dipped in gold.

In the Sasha Samsonova-directed visual, Teyana takes center stage covered only in flakes of gold and dripping in chains through a stunning video made entirely of stop-motion pictures tied together. "Dipped in gold the trophies home this bitch a champion," Teyana declares over the hardened beat as she simultaneously takes us things to a whole new level, expertly contorting her body and flexing her dancing abilities as her motions match the intensity of the video.

Last week, Taylor's "Fade" director Eli Russell Linnetz talked about piecing together the steamy music video.

""Flashdance" is just so iconic that it's hard to move away from that, but the Ohio Players' album covers were our starting point. Some people picked up on the Grace Jones boxing images by Jean-Paul Goude. I pulled a lot of references from '70s and '80s porn, just on Pornhub. That was less about the imagery and more about the texture of the skin, the oiliness. There's John Carpenter films, "The Fly." There's also things like "Dancing With the Stars," the Olympics and the N.B.A. championship. I brought on Guillermo Navarro, who shot "Jackie Brown," as the cinematographer. Renelou Padora did the styling, and then Tino [Schaedler] did the art direction. He's done everything from "Harry Potter" movies to Daft Punk videos. It all seems fragmented, and then it's all boiled down to this one image because Kanye is so good about overseeing the people involved." (New York Times)

A few days prior, Teyana dished on landing in the jaw-dropping music video.

"I was literally shaking because Kanye is very secretive when it comes to projects that he's very interested in. We hadn't even seen the video before last night. So when I heard that the video was going to be premiering at the VMAs, I was like "Oh my god, it's tonight! Do I look good? Do I look great? Is he going to change his mind and not premiere it?" At that point I had already told all of my family, but even when he went onstage and I saw him, I thought he might just wind up doing something completely different because you just never know with Kanye."
