Cape Town - Kanye West’s latest music video for his hit song, Closed on Sunday stars his wife Kim Kardashian-West, their kids and some of the Kardashian clan.

The video, which dropped on Thursday afternoon, begins with Kanye, Kim and their children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, resting on a rock on a hill. Kim and the kids have their eyes closed while Kanye seems to keep watch.

In the next few scenes of the video, the rest of the family along with Kanye’s choir members arrive in big ATVs. Kris Jenner emerges out of one of the vehicles with Kanye – looking all glammed up in a fur coat and diamond earrings.

Kourtney Kardashian and her children, Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick also make an appearance on the video.

According to Rolling Stone, Closed On Sunday became one of the most popular tracks from Kanye’s album Jesus Is King and this was because of how the rapper talked about his devotion to God and his family.

E! News reported that the song is a reference to a popular American fast food chain ‘Chick-Fil-A’ that closes on Sundays to abide by the founder Samuel Truett Cathy’s Christian faith.

The video ends with a standout moment from Kim and Kanye’s six-year-old North, who yells “Chick-Fil-A” which is different from the album version where Kanye West yells it at the end instead.
