We all saw Kanye West’s incredible “All Day” performance at the 2015 BRIT Awards. It included an army in all black, an impressive flamethrower, and an electrifying Allan Kingdom. The award show has just released a little clip of the moment before the moment, and it’s a quiet but interesting look at the vibe leading up to a performance as huge as Kanye’s most recent.
