Two years ago, when Kanye was prepping to tour for Yeezus, he was known to perform a song called “Awesome,” an ode to his wife Kim Kardashian. Now, after persistent rumors that the song would end up on his next album, it looks like we’ve gotten the full, CDQ version of “Awesome” above.
The song is, like almost every new Kanye song, unlike anything he’s ever done. It starts with horns reminiscent of a Christopher Nolan movie before it opens into bare piano and Kanye’s autotune. If we had to identify this with any previous ‘Ye period, it’d be 808s and Heartbreak.
Hear the song above. What do you think?
