Kanye West’s newest song “Only One” is an emotional ballad that will undoubtedly bring tears to your eyes. The song is featured in his late mother Donda’s perspective, who tragically passed away in 2007. In the song, she wants Kanye to tell North West about her and to know she’s always with him. The song is beyond special. To top it all off, the song also features legendary singer Paul McCartney!
This is Kanye’s first new song since his Yeezus album in 2013 and “Only One” is the rapper’s most vulnerable song to date. The death of his mother Donda hit him extremely hard, and now Kanye is paying tribute to his beloved parent in the best way he knows how — through song.
Kanye sings about his two angels — Kim and North — and lets Donda speak through him. In the song, she is so “proud” of him and he will always be her “chosen one.” She knows they’ll meet again someday.
At the end of the song, he repeats the phrase “Tell Nori about me” over and over again. We’re sure both Kanye and Kim are keeping Donda’s memory alive and telling North all about her grandmother. The single featured a gorgeous new photo of Kanye and North. They look so much alike!
Paul McCartney also makes an appearance on the song with a terrific organ solo. There have been rumors that Kanye will release a new album in 2015, and it looks like he’s off to a great start!
