“Power” couple! Irina Shayk had a starring role in Kanye West’s “Power” music video more than a decade before the pair began dating.
In the music video, which was released in August 2010, a camera slowly zooms out on West, 44, who makes eye contact with the lens as he stands regally among tall columns.
As more of the image slowly comes into view, Shayk, 35, can be seen seated in front of the Chicago native — appearing to take on the role of his queen, if you will. As more characters appear on screen, the Victoria’s Secret angel’s giant golden wings unfold.
While they were both dating other people at the time, Us Weekly confirmed West and Shayk’s relationship on Wednesdаy, June 9.
