Today – New Years Day, 2015 – one of the most powerful and unexpected music collaborations in modern history has been released exclusively on the iTunes music store: “Only One.” The single features the undeniable talent of two musical and cultural icons: Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
It will be the first publicly available recording from what has become a prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.
In early 2014, Paul McCartney and Kanye West first began working together in a small bungalow in Los Angeles. The process that would result in “Only One” began with a simple brainstorming session between the two: With McCartneyimprovising on the keyboards and Kanye vocally sketching and shaping ideas in a stream-of-consciousness riff.
When they played back the recording afterward, something remarkable happened. Kanye sat there with his family, holding his daughter North on his lap, and listened to his vocals, singing, “Hello, my only one . . . ” And in that moment, not only could he not recall having sung those words, but he realized that perhaps the words had never really come from him.
The process of artistic creation is one that does not involve thinking, but often channeling. And he understood in that moment that his late mother, Dr. Donda West, who was also his mentor, confidante, and best friend, had spoken through him that day.
“My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter,” he said, astonished.
The small group in the room kept listening: “Hello my Only One…just like the morning sun…you’ll keep on rising till the sky knows your name.”
To some, Kanye’s insight didn’t immediately register. But then he explained: The name Kanye, which his mother had chosen, means “only one.”
And then it dawned on everyone there: Something powerful and undeniable had occurred through the power of music and of letting go. A message had been passed down through generations.
And so it is that there was only one song that could be released first from this groundbreaking collaboration: “Only One,” an anthem of positive reflection, hopefulness and joyous celebration to usher in a New Year.
There is only one you. There is only one life. And there is only one 2015. “Only One” is available exclusively on the iTunes music store in 119 countries exclusively for one week. Enjoy. And Happy New Year.

According to a source for Hollywood Life,
“Kanye already told Kim [Kardashian] not to have Scott around North because there’s no telling whether he’s going to be partying or what might come out of his mouth. Kanye has told everyone in the family that too, even Kris [Jenner], because he’ll be damned if Nori is going to see a grown man, especially one in her family, acting a fool. He doesn’t want Nori around Scott – not at all.”
Can you blame West for wanting his daughter kept as far from Disick as possible. Even while filming Keeping Up with the Kardashian‘s Disick has been extremely drunk and out of control on camera. Can you imagine how scary his behavior must get when those cameras aren’t actually rolling? There was some initial hope that Kourtney’s third pregnancy would be the catalyst that would motivate Disick to finally get himself together but that doesn’t seem to have happened yet.
Scott has been incredibly depressed over losing both his parents within a 3 month span of each other. Girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with couple’s 3rd child and has put added strain on the couples relationship. Kourtney says “I definitely had to build up the courage to tell Scott because he has been just super depressed and I don’t want to set him off,” she said.
Scott already overwhelmed is scared to take on more responsibility. “I barely feel like I can take care of myself, I am hanging on by a string here,”

As Kim got ready to leave Paris Fashion Week she forgot one very special important thing …her 15 month old daughter inside a Paris Hotel! Once Kim realized she had forgotten North, she quickly turned around and got her baby.
