Late last year, rumors of Kanye West collaborating with Paul McCartney began to surface. Those rumors have been confirmed with "Only One," a heartfelt song that features Kanye's auto-tuned vocals gently cascading over McCartney's skillful keyboard playing. Listen to the song above.
People magazine reports that this is the first single from Kanye West's upcoming solo album. They also have a quote where he explains, "My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter." Kanye told people at the recording session that his mother chose the name "Kanye" because it means "only one."
Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, took to twitter on the day the song was released to express her thoughts:
People always ask me what my favorite Kanye song is and it's Only One. Kanye feels like his mom sang thru him to our daughter.
