Kanye West is obviously just a big softie at heart as his latest music video shows. Only One features Kanye and his daughter North West in a video shot just like a home movie. In classic Kanye style though this home-style video is still directed by Oscar-winning ‘Her’ director Spike Jonze. It’s very minimalist and simple, showing Kanye strolling around a foggy field hand-in-hand with his daughter. The song is meant to represent his late mother singing to Kanye about his future.
Only One was released on January 1st and features Paul McCartney on keyboards. It’s the first single to be cut from West’s 7th studio album that, as yet, has no title or release date.
The rapper debuted the clip on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Thursday (January 29) and told Ellen how fatherhood has changed him: “I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more … I’ve learned how to shut up more. I think I’m a better human being because of her [Kim Kardashian] and because of my daughter.”
Only One is the second collaboration between West and McCartney, who also got together with Rihanna for the new single FourFiveSeconds, released last week.
