Kanye Enlists Elton John and 10 Others for ‘All the Lights’
At last night’s ‘Runaway’ screening in Los Angeles, Kanye West revealed that his next single ‘All the Lights’ is set to feature appearances from an astounding eleven artists. Impressive considering his previous G.O.O.D. Friday leaks like ‘Monster‘ and ‘So Appalled‘ already boasted star power from Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, RZA, Rick Ross and indie crooner Bon Iver.
The eleven artists in question for ‘All the Lights’ include four G.O.O.D. Friday veterans: Kid Cudi, John Legend, Ryan Leslie and Charlie Wilson. Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Fergie, The-Dream, Tony Williams and La Roux‘s Elly Jackson also join the bill. But, the icing on the cake is none other than Sir Elton John, who paired with hip-hop in the past, performing at the 2001 Grammys with Eminem.
As can be expected, each artist will not be afforded a complete verse on the track. And though on paper the list looks like a mess, Kanye described the sound as “completely seamless and completely ghetto as f—.” No word yet, on when this star-studded track is scheduled for release.
In the meantime, catch the premiere of Kanye’s short film ‘Runaway’ on Saturday, Oct. 23 on BET and MTV at 8PM. ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,’ his fifth studio album, is currently scheduled to drop on November 22.
