Kanye West’s Paul McCartney Collaboration Hits No. 3 on iTunes Chart (Video)

West surprised fans with “Only One” on New Year’s Eve

Kanye West’s “Only One,” a collaboration with former Beatle, Paul McCartney, has risen to No. 3 on the iTunes singles chart.

The ode to his daughter, North West, was released on the Apple platform on New Year’s Eve, and is receiving rave reviews from users for West’s heartfelt lyrics backed by McCartney’s simply keyboard melody.

The surprise single is written from the perspective of West’s mother Donda, who died from surgery complications in 2007, speaking to her son from Heaven about the daughter he shares with reality star Kim Kardashian.

“I talked to God about you/He said he sent you an angel/And look at all he gave you/You asked for one, and you got two,” West sings. “You know I never left you/Because every road that leads to Heaven’s right beside you.”

“Only One” is available for fans to listen to in its entirety on West’s website, and download through iTunes.
