Kanye West hit The Ellen DeGeneres Show to premiere his new music video, “Only One.” Now when it comes to Kanye videos, things can sometimes wander into questionable territory (have you seen “Bound 2?”), but his latest effort is just so sweet and adorable, it is absolutely impervious to any kind of hate.
Kanye’s daughter North joins the rapper in the video for the ballad, the pair wandering down a misty road by an open field. The two do very adorable father-daughter stuff. Kanye carries North, whispering in her ear. Nori is dressed in something her dad might wear; a dark button-down, pants, duck boots and a khaki green shearling and fur-trimmed parka. Kanye plays the doting dad in this video, making you forget for a moment that he’s the guy who told a fan in a wheelchair to stand up at one of his concerts.
By the by, Kanye claims he’s over all that petulant behavior. He explained his past blowups to Ellen: “I think I was going through my version of my terrible twos. My daughter, she wants to express herself, she just doesn’t have the words for it. And for me, there’s so many things I want to do with film, with clothing, and I just didn’t have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being that I was a rapper or all these things.”
Oh, so that explains the leather jogging pants outburst. Watch Kanye’s new video above.
