Kanye West launched on the occasion of New Year’s, their single ” Only One” , a soft ballad that features the voice of the world famous rapper and former Beatle member Paul McCartney on keys.
“The process that led to ‘Only One’ began with a simple brainstorming between the two, with McCartney improvising on the keyboard and Kanye sketching voice,” said the statement.
The song was inspired by Kanye West daughter, Baby North West, who was sitting by the pc when he sang ” Hello, the one for me! ” West said that his mother used to sing those words to him as a child. Wow! That is so endearing!
“My mother was singing to me and now from me, to my daughter….” said West, her first name also means ” just one “.
That is something that I did not know. Who know “North” meant “One”?
Def Jam described this work as ” one of the most powerful and unexpected collaborations of music in modern history.”
With two powerful industry moguls in the studio, I can agree totally with Def Jam’s opinion.
Kayne West has had a reputation for being somewhat short tempered and notorious for his black-barred on screen opinions to say the least, while the legendary Beatle, Paul McCartney, is known for his sweet demeanor and soft spoken vocals.
For those who were able to take advantage of the short time to download the single on Itunes, it is surely a track for the Guinness World Record of a Great job in collabs. For those who weren’t able to due to work, holidays, or frozen aps, I have a strong feeling this isn’t going to the last from these two hit makers. So make sure you make time for the music and make sure you refresh your network settings so you don’t miss the next best of the best.
