Kanye West pulled a Beyoncé and kicked off the new year by dropping a new surprise single called “Only One” featuring Paul McCartney on the keyboard.

This is the first official new song from Kanye since the release of “Yeezus” in June 2013, and it’s sung from the perspective of his mother Donda who died in 2007.
“My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter,” said Kanye, whose name actually means “only one.”
FWIW, it’s already Kim Kardashian’s favorite song.
