The two artists are legends in their own rights but come from completely different musical genres with different audiences. This collab brings light to the other artist from each others artist’s fandoms. People now know who McCartney is while many others will be more familiar with West and his work. The ballad proves to be a beautiful fusion of the different backgrounds into one song.
