Kanye West and Paul McCartney Collaborate on New Track

There’s no words for this one. A new Kanye West track has surfaced for the New Year, and of all the people in the world…Paul McCartney is part of it. The Real Beatle and the Black Beatle have teamed up to create a track that’s…actually pretty good. It’s got an 808s & Heartbreak vibe, with Kanye’s voice autotuned much more tastefully used than its been since that album. It’s built around a simple Rhodes piano line to start, gradually adding in more layers in a way that’s reminiscent of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (right down to some of the effects), but it stays pretty simple and bright. I had no idea what to expect when I had heard the two were collaborating, but this is definitely more than I expected.

Am I spot on? Or just plain stupid? Tell me!
