Kanye West fans have praised “newcomer” Sir Paul McCartney and predicted the Beatles legend is going to have a great career after collaborating with the rapper on new song ‘Only One’.

While many thought the comments about one of the most successful performers of all time were comical, some reacted with genuine concern about the youth of today.

Paul and Kanye teamed up last year to record the song, which is dedicated to the rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian West’s 18-month-old daughter North and his late mother Donda West, who died in 2007.
The Beatles star plays keyboard on the song, which was released last Thursday (01.01.15), and Kanye sings from the perspective of his mother.
Kim is a huge fan of the tune and ranks it as her favourite song of the rapper’s, admitting she breaks down in tears every time she listens to it.
She tweeted: “People always ask me what my favorite Kanye song is and it’s Only One. Kanye feels like his mom sang thru him to our daughter.
“I cry every time I hear this song (sic)”
