Every year brings new artists to the scene in the music world, but there are some veterans that people are on the lookout for. There are some artists that just build the anticipation because they have been away so long.

Kanye West is one of these anticipated artists. He has changed the album name 3 times in 2015, and there still isn’t a release date for the record. It is true that fans should have expected this. He has put some much time into his clothing line. His wife is pregnant again and he is enjoying the time that he spends as a husband and father.

West was busy last year with singles with everyone from Fox Carolina with Jon Urbana, to Ty Dollar Sign and Paul McCartney. It seems like fans were on the verge of getting a full album, but then the name of the album changed. It seemed like Kanye was falling apart under the pressure of producing a new record. Much of this could be linked to his previous formats.

It was easy to follow the school themes of “College Dropout” and “Late Registration.” These albums are easy. Once he departed from this the whole sound of his music changed. People are wondering if the same thing will happen to Adele has dropped her last age-titled album in 2015. People will just have to wait to see what the “College Dropout” will do here in 2016.

Recently, the rock legend Paul McCartney of the Beatles and alternative hop hop guru Kanye West teamed up to make a ballad titled “Only One”. The song was released January 1st as a new single for the new year. The hit song will be on his upcoming album and so far has proved successful by the reviews of his fans. The song has even received notice from movie producer Tom Rothman as a potential song for some upcoming movie trailers.

The song featured Paul McCartney on the piano. After the songs release, many of West’s fans took it to social media to discuss how West’s collab with McCartney will give him a great career. Most of the people are unaware who McCartney is, thinking he is an unknown, young singer making it out in the music world, and just had his first real collab with a big time major artist’s track.

The responses of unknowing Kanye West fans is comical but it also shows why the collab is so big. 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.
