Kanye West Readying Rihanna & Paul McCartney Collaboration

Published: Saturday 3rd Jan 2015 by Sam

Renown for his unpredictability, Kanye West lived up to his billing this New Year’s by rolling out new track ‘Only One’. Beyond the fact that the cut arrived with no forewarning, the real surprise for many was the presence of Beatles legend Paul McCartney.

Interestingly, it seems ‘Only’ isn’t the only song the unlikely pair have teamed up for.

Details below…

Hip-Hop star Ty Dolla $ign, who sings background vocals on the single, spoke with Billboard about his experience working with Yeezy.

During the chat, he let slip that the eclectic rapper is prepping another McCartney number alongside popular model Rihanna.

Via BB:

What can you tell me about the other songs you worked on with ‘Ye?
Me, Rihanna, ‘Ye and Paul [Mc Cartney] got a song about to drop as well…

It’s featured on ‘Ye’s album?
Yeah. It’s gonna drop soon. I heard they shot the video recently. I don’t know what the final title is, but I know it’s crazy so just be looking out for [it].


We just hope this doesn’t turn out to be a collaboration that sounds better on paper than in reality.

Your thoughts?

    Rihanna on a song with McCartney, we can finally say she made it. Lennon would have never lowered himself. No offense to Riri or Kanye but we are talking about a Beatle, a f****** Beatle.

    • Mark111 January 3, 2015

      The original boy band? Those bugs? Nothing special. #UKTrash

      • Suicide Blonde January 3, 2015

        You lost all the credibility I once gave to you, from now on, everything you will say about other artists will not be taken seriously, just another troll commenting, you know, it’s okay to be a fan of Rihanna, that’s great, I think she’s cool but don’t act like this, I love Madonna but I would never offend musical geniuses like The Beatles just because someone shade her in a comment, you cannot really compare any music act to The Beatles, they were, are and always will be the Gods of Music.

      • Career Ender January 3, 2015

        @Mark most of their music os boring but they also have some very good songs. I think they’re overrated
        @ Blondie, But Lennon wanst that >>>> McCartney , they were prolly equal
        is McCartney really collab’ing wirh Ye and that other chick? I don’t know

      • Suicide Blonde January 3, 2015

        @Career Ender
        I think Lennon was a better lyrics, while McCartney is better musically, I just prefer Lennon’s art more.

      • donttryit January 3, 2015

        You gotta really sit and listen to what they saying in they music the Beatles are deep and poetic I could get high and listen to them all day and I’m only 21

    • What now January 3, 2015

      She been made it, where you been?

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

      Wow. Is there a Black recording artist that you actually like? Clearly you don’t like any Black Hip-Hop, R&B or Pop artist. You’re more of the Indie and Rock type. You never have anything remotely good to say about Beyonce, Rihanna, Janet etc. If you don’t like them or the genres or the color of their skin, then why do you feel the need to overcompensate with your 2 cents on their posts? God bless your racist heart.

      • Suicide Blonde January 3, 2015

        @I stand(D)
        What did I say about black artists?. I actually like Rihanna, Beyoncé and Janet but let’s not compare them to The Beatles, to answer your question, yes, i do like some black musicians, Prince is my fave among them, btw, i don’t listen to artists because of their skin color, i’m probably more open to listen to different artists than most of you.

    • denden580 January 3, 2015

      Rihanna has worked with other legends before such as Elton John and Bono.

      • Suicide Blonde January 3, 2015

        But neither Elton nor Bono are bigger than McCartney, he’s a Beatle.

    • Jhud January 4, 2015

      So Marks opinion on the Dung Beatles makes him a troll and not to be taken seriously, but yet, you have stated that Madonna and Judas Timberfake are better performers then, Michael, Tina Turner, Janet and Beyonce. so the only one here who shouldn’t be taken seriously, IS YOU. So please stfu.

    • Cupid January 3, 2015

  5. LovaticKisses January 3, 2015

    Who is Paul Macartney? I like how kanye is always giving the new guys so e shine

    • Beysus January 3, 2015

      Please be sarcastic…

    • Liam January 3, 2015

      pls tell me you are joking….anyways i’m piqued to hear the song. Say what you want bout Kanye attitude nut sonically and musically the man is a genius with his craft

      • Mark111 January 3, 2015

        He’s not familiar with a band member. Stop acting like he forgot the first president.

  6. Mark111 January 3, 2015

    Well the last song was trash. Kanye does this just to brag that he did a song with a Bug member. Rihanna ft will be a hit, as usual.

  7. What now January 3, 2015

    Sfop hating and btw you don’t know what john Lennon would do, your conjecture shows the idiot you are, bt you are a bey Stan sooooooo

        Seriously. This happens all the time. Like, a lot.

  9. Mark111 January 3, 2015

    I guess I made the white boy upset. Do YOU think the Bugs are great or were you TOLD that they were great and you went with it. White media doesn’t decide what’s great or good to ME, IIIIII decide what I like and what I think is great. Music is art, art is subjective, everyone has their own opinion. I dissed a person that played music, not Jesus Christ. Get over yourself.

    • Career Ender January 3, 2015

      *grabs popcorn*

    • Suicide Blonde January 3, 2015

      I’m not mad at your ignorance, i’m not the one who is making himself sound like a fool. I DISSED A PERSON THAT PLAYED MUSIC, NOT JESUS CHRIST. GET OVER YOURSELF. You should have think about that before you posted that stupid comment, besides i said, no offense to Rihanna and Kanye.

      • caribbean native January 3, 2015

        The beatles had nothing on the jackson 5 and paul mc-whatever his name is had nothing on micheal jackson…… #jussaying

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

      It’s 2015 my dear. Are you still on LB’s McDonald’s shade? You’re so original. LB would be flattered if she saw this. Anyway, how was your New Year’s day shift at KFC?

      • Career Ender January 3, 2015

        lovebird didn’t create no McDonald’s shade. I can see you are new to tgj it has been around
        lb searches for drags from other blogs and forums and try so hard on tgj don’t try me with that thing

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 3, 2015

        I love how you say “Lovebird” as if I don’t know what LB stands for. I’ve been visiting this blog for a longtime, but unlike you, I don’t feel like I have to address it, or those who were here. I clearly have TGJ fossils like you bothered with my traffic-increasing presence (Data traffic you bittch – I study IT).
        Who said she created it? The fact is that you heard it from her. Nice try tho. You told me that it was on between us on the New Year’s post, so bring it. I’m really getting bored with the recycled shades you get from other commentators, or maybe you get them from blogs or forums you so happily mentioned. Oops!!! Goo’ Bye.

  12. What now January 3, 2015

    People are asking why Beyoncé won’t check her Stan base like Rihanna just did.

    It’s hard to check behavior that you initiated, the bey camp taught these people this hateful behavior that had never been sen until she came on th scene, fortunately this rabid ness is being contained as it is awful behavior as people don’t have time for that except the queen and her beehive

    Looking fwd to good music wherever it come from , not idol worship and spewing hate towards others, the trademarks of the bey camp

  13. Lily January 3, 2015

    What? Popular Model? Yeah! We know you hating ass. Keep doing ur s*** while Rihanna keep visiting the Bank. I can’t wait to hear the stuff.

  14. Rihanna #1 fan t January 3, 2015

    Kanye is a genius Love that man.. His song with Paul McCartney “Only One” is magic.. Can’t wait to hear the song with Rihanna …

  15. G4L January 3, 2015

    Nowadays music is about ‘omg who’s collabing’ rather than the content itself

    • JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

      That´s true.

  16. metzo January 3, 2015

    Sounds like a hit . Can’t wait to hear it

  17. Tea honey January 3, 2015

    Rih is only getting bigger this is the way it’s supposed to be for an artist not flopping 5 years into your career like a certain hasbeen..

  18. Molly January 3, 2015

    I already know it will slay Rihanna and Kayne always make magic.

  19. @RealMattPhoenix January 3, 2015

    I’m not a huge kanye fan but damn did their last collaboration create a hit. I’m expecting a good thing from this.

  20. JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

    Did anyone really bad mouthed The Beatles here??? LOL while praising Rihanna? LMAO
    Let´s be clear: Beatles are legends for a reason, Kanye West is incredibly talented, way out of reach for any other rapper in some aspects artistically (no matter what you think about him), and Rihanna is a mediocre puppet.
    There´s nothing more to it and don´t even try to deny this universal fact 🙂

    • Rima January 3, 2015

      You seem like you live such a miserable life. You’re always so unhappy go out and enjoy life sis

      • JOHNVIDAL January 3, 2015

        LOL yeah righ! Like you don´t read your own comments or those of most of the people in here right? 🙂 I´m always so positive and just support talent, it´s just in 10% of posts about Rihanna, katy Perry or Miley Cyrus that I just need to say truths about such undeserving success (well singles success more than anything, you know).

  21. Mark111 January 3, 2015

    Can someone point out where I praised and defended Rihanna? Whiteboy dissed some artists and I did the same. The irony that the ones with hurt feelings are trying to say I’m the one mad, lol. I’m going to need the Gags stan to look up the definition of facts and opinions. #SayMyName #SayMyName

  22. W.T.F January 3, 2015

    Why do you call him whiteboy but when he calls u blackboy u call him racist

    Coming from a black dude

    • Mark111 January 3, 2015

      Your namw is so fitting. Who The Fvck are you?

      • W.T.F January 3, 2015


        So u can’t even answer my question u disrespectful hoodrat

      • Mark111 January 3, 2015

        He states time and time again that he’s white, so whats the problem? He’s a boy because of his childish thoughts. Is that better troll account?

  23. W.T.F January 3, 2015

    3 great artists i love the idea

  24. Royalkev January 3, 2015

    Interesting! … I never know what Kanye will do next! That’s truly a big part of what makes him such a great artist. Ye’s always willing to experiment! Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn’t. You got to love that he doesn’t allow himself to be stuck creatively and artistically in a box. I love ‘Only One’ and I’m eager to hear his complete body of work soon.

  25. Dossome January 3, 2015

    Now The Beatles are called “Bugs”…..the fools that flock the comment section get dumber by the day.

  26. Blue Ivy Rodriguez January 3, 2015

    Even if you don’t like their music, the Beatles are legends and have shaped/ inspired many artists that came after them. Just saying

  27. Mark111 January 3, 2015

    The Bugs were nothing more than One Direction of the 60s and a check for the Jackson family for decades. Nuff said, you slaves can bow all ya want, I won’t and that’s the power of opinion.

  28. blue January 3, 2015

    look at this fools, rihanna has inspired new artists, madonna has inspired even more, bey, janet… And daily they are insulted on here, i like the beatles but get over yourselves. And this is paul not the beatles… Bey /= destiny child

  29. blue January 3, 2015

    cant wait for this, U2, coldplay, bon jovi, now mccarthy… Rihanna makes more move in the rock community then an actual rocker…

  30. caribbean native January 3, 2015

    Meanwhile in other news….i heard mathew knowles is selling all of beyonce’s grammys in a yard sale…….he must of regretted buying them…..*sips tea*

  31. girlbye January 4, 2015

    Mark whoever while youre dissing the beatles who was and still is a great band…mj said on numerous occasions that imagine by john lennon was one of his favorite songs along with smile by charlie chaplin(another white guy) and s*** the first single off of thriller(the girl is mine) is featured with paul McCartney! ! And did you just say one direction with the beatles?? The beatles were actually talented and played their music while one direction dont do s*** at all they dont even dance. Like learn your music history it make you look ignorant!
