Sir Paul McCartney recently sat down with The Sun and revealed that working with Kanye West was like working with his late band mate John Lennon. While working on tracks like “Only One” and Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds,” McCartney said that Kanye is “amazingly talented, but controversial and can make eccentric moves.”

“When I wrote with John, he would sit down with a guitar,” McCartney told The Sun. “I would sit down. We’d ping-pong till we had a song. It was like that.”

Here’s McCartney’s reflection of his time with Kanye while working on “Only One.”

“We sat around and talked an awful lot just to break the ice. One of the stories I told him was about how I happened to have written ‘Let It Be.’ My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state — it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song. I told Kanye this and he said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ So then I sat down at the piano.”
