Talented musician Kanye West dropped a new track at midnight on New Year's. Kanye sings -- yes, sings -- on the track, titled "Only One", from the perspective of Kanye's deceased mother, Donda West.
The track is getting an unusual amount of press -- considering how banal it is -- because legend Paul McCartney plays an electric piano (the only instrument played on the track. Additionally, McCartney may or may not be singing the background chorus -- it's hard to tell through all that auto-tune white noise.
As a singer, Kanye should recognize his vocal limitations and never put his fans through this again.
But as an emotional vehicle for those who have lost their own moms, this track is worth giving at least one listen.
"I know you're happy, cause I can see it," Kanye sings (in his mother's voice) "I talked to God about you / He said he sent you an angel / Look at all that he gave you / You asked for one and you got two."
On the last line of the song, Kanye sings (in his mother's voice) "Tell Nori about me."
Kanye was his mother's only child, and so far, North West is Kanye and Kim Kardashian's only child.
