Kanye West shocked the world again when he dropped 3 songs with Paul McCartney: “Only One”, “All Day”, and “FourFiveSeconds” in the passed 2 years. Sir Paul reveals to Rolling Stone that at first he really didn’t think their collaboration would work out, but after giving it a try, he wounded up loving Kanye’s creative process.

The Beatles’ legend only had admiration for Mr. West:

“The only deal I made with Kanye was that if it doesn’t work, we won’t tell anyone. I didn’t know his system. I’d heard things like, ‘He’s got a room full of guys working on riffs, and he walks around going, ‘I like that one.’ It reminded me of Andy Warhol, these artists who use students to paint their backgrounds and things. It’s a well-used technique. I thought, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to fit into that, but let’s see. Here goes nothing.'”

McCartney then revealed how the melody of “All Day” came about after he whistled something he created in 1969 and Ye recorded it:

“I whistled it for him. His engineer was recording it, and it went into the pool of ingredients. Kanye was just collecting things. We weren’t going to sit down and write a song so much as talk and spark ideas off each other. It was only when I got this song, the Rihanna record and ‘Only One,’ the three tracks we did, that I went, ‘I get it. He’s taken my little whistle-y thing.’ It returned to me as an urban hip-hop riff. I love that record.”

(He loves the music of the song, I don’t think he actually walks around saying “ALL DAY N***A!” Lmao or does he…) Head over to Rolling Stone if you want to read the full interview.
