In case you missed it amongst New Year’s celebration and study anxiety, Kanye West dropped a new song just as the calendar rolled over to 2015. That alone would normally be huge news, but “Only One” is not only a brand new Kanye jam (and Kim K’s favorite, no less) it also features none other than Paul McCartney, and apparently is the first in what will be a “prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.”
If you’re like me, the byline Kanye West (feat. Paul McCartney) makes you do a quadruple take. But after thinking about it a little bit more, it’s a pairing that makes some sense. Both are defining artists in their respective genres, and both have a long history of interesting collaboration – I highly recommend checking out Sir Paul’s strange grifter partnership with Michael Jackson and Kanye’s awesomely weird music video starring Zach Galifianakis.
