Kanye West released “Only One” as the first single after his album Yeezus. Paul McCartney co-produced it and it is definitely one of Kanye’s more emotional songs. The concept is based on the fact the song is sung from the perspective of Kanye’s late mother Donda West as she looks down from heaven at her son and granddaughter. The ultimate line in this song is “No you’re not perfect but you’re not your mistakes”. Those lines are lessons to live by.
