Kanye West’s new song “Only One” is an emotional ballad that will undoubtedly make you have all the feels. 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.
