Paul McCartney Collaborates with Kanye West, Gives Him Song with Melody


Kanye West is damn lucky Paul McCartney agreed to work with him. For the first time, Kanye has a song with a beautiful melody, totally original, no samples. The lyrics make Kanye Sense, but that’s ok. Paul plays the piano and provides harmony. I thought “Yeezus” sounded like someone had a multiple car crash. On “Only One” Kanye actually ‘sings’. Let’s hope if there’s more of this on an album we hear Sir Paul’s voice.
