Just before the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve 2014, Kanye West dropped an emotional ode to his daughter North in the form of Only One.
The song, featuring Paul McCartney, is sung from the perspective of West’s late mother Dr. Donda West.
Yeezy also summoned Ty Dolla $ign to record with him on the track and last September the West Coast crooner jumped on a plane to Mexico, where over the span of two days they recorded roughly nine songs together.
Speaking about the beautiful track, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian said…
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.
