Kanye West releases new ‘Only One’ video, directed by Spike Jonze

Kanye West has just released an intimate video for his single “Only One.” The song, a collaboration with Paul McCartney (who plays keyboards on the track), is a tribute both to Kanye’s late mother and to the artist’s young daughter North.

North appears in the video, which is directed by Spike Jonze—the director behind such legendary (and much showier) videos as Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice,” Weezer’s “Buddy Holly,” and Björk’s “It’s Oh So Quiet.”

The video, which Kanye teased this morning on Ellen, is now streaming at the artist’s website.
