Kanye West kicked off the new year by releasing a new song alongside the legendary Paul McCartney. The single is entitled 'Only One', a soft ballad in which the legendary beatle participates as an instrumentalist, playing a mythical Fender Rhodes piano in the best style of the seventies. The theme has been the result of a joint collaboration that began towards the beginning of 2014, when both artists met in the city of Los Angeles (USA) due to professional commitments.
The press release from the rapper's label, Def Jam, detailed on the new topic: «The process that resulted in Only One started with a simple brainstorming between the two, with Paul McCartney improvising on the keyboard and Kanye doing vocal rehearsals ». As the rapper confessed, the new song is inspired by West's daughter, named North, who was sitting at his computer when the musician told her: «Hello, you are the only one for me» (Hello my only one). West also revealed that his own mother used to say those words to him as a child..
«My mother was singing to me and, through me, to my daughter»said West, who created the lyrics for the song whose title means "The only one". Def Jam rated this new job as "One of the most powerful and unexpected collaborations of music in modern history". 'Only One' was released on New Year's Eve, and is available on iTunes in 119 countries for just one week.
