Paul McCartney and Kanye West's Emotional Ballad 'Only One'
Quote:Wednesday night, Kanye West unveiled "Only One," a minimal, poignant new track featuring Paul McCartney on keyboard.

Written from the perspective of Kanye's late mother Donda, who died in 2007 from surgery complications, "Only One" sounds like a bittersweet bonus track from Kanye's 808s and Heartbreak. "Remember how I'd say one day/You'll be the man you always knew you would be," West's Auto-Tuned voice sings. "And if you knew how proud I was/You'd never shed a tear/Have a fear/No you wouldn't do that." McCartney, for his part, eschew any histrionics in favor of a simple and plaintive style befitting the emotional lyrics. "My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter," West said in a statement, also noting that the name "Kanye" means "Only one."

Those kids who don't know Paul McCartney must be so unaware about music in general. My favorite comment is about him being an "unknown artist". He has been in the music business for over 50 years.....

John, I agree -- it is a good response.

Although, for some reason, I have this vision of Sir Paul as being rather amused by this.
