When Kanye West dropped this song at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve, news stations and the internet were collectively fooled into thinking no one knew who Paul McCartney was because of a few comedians who made a joke along the lines of, “boy, this Paul McCartney guy is gonna be big. Kanye sure knows how to find talent.”
Of course, there are undoubtedly people who didn’t get the joke and actually don’t know who Paul McCartney is, but those people do not deserve to know who he is then anyway. It’s kind of like a 24 year-old San Francisco 49ers fan who claims to have 5 Super Bowl rings when really, their only memory was a diaper full of Sh…..Steve Young. These people should not be paid credence with a response. Smile, nod your head and try your hardest not to give into ignorance. No, it is not always “bliss.”
Word is, this song was birthed with Kanye and Paul in the studio. Paul on the keys, while Kanye sang what came to him as the voice from his late mother through his daugher, Nori.
