It’s been a while since we’ve heard some new tunes from Kanye West, at least newbies that’ll be on an upcoming album anyway.
This guy is loved and hated, personally I think he’s a bit of a tool but I can get past that and appreciate his music for what it is, original, smart, funny and down-right kickin’. I love “808s & Heartbreak”, much more than his previous efforts but this new song “Power” sounds like nothing on 808s and maybe that’s good, changing his direction a bit. Shitloads of handclaps, some fuzzed-up guitars, tribal chanting and a sweet bass line.
Give it a listen.
