Kanye West pleasantly surprised fans on New Years Eve with the sudden release of a new single entitled Only One, above, where he sings – using autotune – uplifting lyrics about the positive encouragement he’s received from his mother Donda, who tragically passed away of heart disease in 2008. He ends the song by repeatedly – and endearingly – proclaiming the following line of concern regarding his daughter, “tell Nori about me.”
The song was a collaborative effort done between West and the legendary Sir Paul McCartney, who is also featured on the track. The duo’s melody is also rumored to be Kim Kardashian-West‘s favorite song from her husband’s impressive collection of hits. Only One has been out since December 31st and is available for purchase on iTunes.
UPDATE: I previously reported about a music video for the song that had been making rounds online, claiming it was official when it was indeed fan made. The official visuals for Only One are now available exclusively at KanyeWest.com.
