Kanye West Collaborates With Paul McCartney For Tribute Song To Daughter [AUDIO]
Kanye West is one of the best producers in the world. He also (at times), makes great music, both as a rapper and as a musician. That being said, he can also come across as a pompous jerk as far as being a person goes. That still shouldn't take away from his obvious talents. On his latest song, 'Only One' which is tribute to his daughter North, that also features the living legend and former The Beatles member, Sir Paul McCartney, we catch a glimpse of the good Kanye.
The good: The song is touching. The message is clear that he's singing about his daughter, but from the point of his mother, Dr. Donda West, who passed away in 2007.
The bad: Kanye isn't really that good of a singer. Auto-Tune can be used to enhance voices and sounds relatively good on most party songs, but here it seems forced and out of place on this slow, heart-felt dedication track.
The song isn't bad, by any means... but it isn't really great either. It just leaves you kind of wishing there was more to it. Anytime you put Paul McCartney's name on something (even as a featured artist), you just expect more.
