Kanye West's 'Awesome' Love Song for Kim Kardashian Leaks Online
Kanye West's rumored ode to Kim Kardashian has finally surfaced online.
The heavily auto-tuned love song "Awesome" dropped overnight, some two years after Kanye first performed it at the 2013 Met Gala.
Early social-media feedback would suggest the recording is anything but awesome. Kanye doesn't do himself any favors with a hatful of corny lyrics, and the vocals are so over-produced, all traces of 'Ye have been stripped out. One of the most memorable lines goes like this: "cause baby you're awesome / so awesome/ you look too good to be at work, you feel too good to ever hurt/ I hope you ready for tonight/ I'm gonna cook, you'll be dessert." Oh, and West calls himself "awesome" a few times, just to prove his legendary ego is still very much intact.
Kanye has been hard at work promoting his upcoming new album release, So Help Me God. His recent schedule has included performances at the Grammys and the Brit Awards, he's worked it for talk shows in the U.K. and Europe, and he delivered a 20-minute-long speech at England's Oxford University. It's unclear if "Awesome" will make the cut.
