And with four words, the maestro is back. Any other syllables would've been deemed superfluous.
After a notable social media disappearance that's lingered over the past year, Kanye West returned to the world of influencers and hashtags to wish his wife, Kim Kardashian, a very lovely Valentine's Day. "Happy Valentine's Day Babe" his simple, monochromatic card read on Instagram. Keeping the romantic vibes flowing, he then followed it up with a blast of photos of iconic couples past and present including the Obamas, Madonna and Sean Penn, and Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere. He's certainly in a different mood than that time he spammed Instagram with 99 photos of old Margiela lookbooks.
Earlier in the day, Kardashian West also flaunted her Buzz Lightyear–esque love for West on the social media platform, although her cropping job could use a little work: "I love you to infinity!"
As mentioned, this is the first time West has posted anything on social media — Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Periscope, or otherwise — since last May, when he mysteriously scrubbed all of his accounts without warning. (Although he had only sporadically been using his accounts in the months leading up to the blackout, following his hospitalization for exhaustion.)
Don't refresh his Insta too much, now. It'll hurt your finger bones. Patience is a virtue.
