Kanye West – “Power” (Feat. Dwele) (Co-Produced by S1)
June 8th is when this new Kanye West single will be available, and that is when everyone will rue the day they are releasing ANYTHING this summer, much less the month of June.
This new Kanye is…on first listen, it’s epic. It’s invigorating. It’s energetic, lively, it moves — it’s Kanye! It makes me realize how much Drake is seriously teetering on the edge getting on my nerves and being relevant (musically to ME) and how Kanye always puts together his elements so well.
The song talks about the trappings of power and metaphorically spins a dark tale, ending with the power and ego ultimately cause demise…
“Power” is the new single from Kanye and it samples “21st Century Man” by King Crimson (according to Ms. Info) and was co-produced by S1 of StrangeFruit Project. I’m not even enough of a crate digger to know all of that! She has all the scoop if you want to check out her “info” above. Also this site has already transcribed the lyrics! Phew.
Overall, this was great to wake up too and it makes me excited for new Kanye music. His creativity seriously is an otherworldly gift (and curse, I’m sure). I’m just excited we get to partake!
