While the rest of the world was busy ringing in the New Year, Kanye West released a surprise new song featuring an even more surprising guest, Paul McCartney on the keyboard.
"Only One" is the first single from Kanye's as-yet-untitled new album. The song appears to be from the perspective of West’s late mother, Donda, who passed away in 2007 and is sung to his and Kim Kardashian West’s one-year old daughter North.
It's being billed as the first of "several" collaborations with McCartney. Kanye is expected to release a new album early in 2015.
