Kanye West “Only One” Review: North West Brings Out Rapper’s Emotional Side
Kanye West released his music video for “Only One,” and it features a couple of surprises. After initially appearing on The Ellen Show, the music video appeared on his website on January 29, in addition to a digital version of the lyrics.
The Spike Jonze-directed music video features Kanye and his daughter, North West, in a rainy field, in an honest down-to-earth father/daughter embrace. Behind Kanye’s lullaby-esque song, which he has stated was supposed to be represent his mother singing to him and his daughter, is Paul McCartney playing soft chords, which help with the mood of the music video.
It’s a pleasure to see Kanye with a genuine smile on his face, and the home-video-style music video he has with North is cute enough to surely generate support from his detractors, who rant about his “arrogance.”
“Only One” is set to be on Kanye’s as of yet untitled upcoming album.
