Kanye West Sings to Daughter North in ‘Only One’ Video
After Kanye West released 'Only One' earlier this month, he showed us a softer side of himself that we don't get hear too often by serenading his daughter North on the song. Now we get to see even more of that tenderness in the video for the track.
Directed by Spike Jonze, the visual feels more like a home movie, as he captures a special father-and-daughter moment. Set on a relatively gloomy day in the middle of a field, we see Kanye brimming with joy as he walks around with North.
The rapper shared the visual on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' today (Jan. 29). He also revealed why he's been much calmer these days and how his family has really changed him. "I've learn how to shut up more," he admitted to Ellen. "I think I'm a better human being because of her and because of my daughter. And I always have someone to think about going home to."
According to 'Ye, the past few years were "suffocating" for him because he was bound to only one project or brand. And now that he's working with Adidas, he's a much happier person.
"I was going through my version of the Terrible Twos," said West. "My daughter, she wants to express herself but she just doesn't have the words for it. For me, there's so many things I want to do with film and clothing and I just didn't have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being a rapper." West also credits his Adidas deal with "allowing him some oxygen."
And now that two new Kanye songs have dropped -- Rihanna's 'FourFiveSeconds' being the other -- Ellen had to ask about when the new album is coming out. "I don't know yet," he told her. "We're still trying to find it. Trying to find the vibe," West said. "This transition from what I felt when I did Yeezus to what I feel now, and we're just creating, so we haven't found it yet."
