The 34-year-old reality star took to the social media site just before Kanye's new song "Only One" was released and shared this touching photo of 'Ye with baby North on his lap with the caption, "Everyone asks me what my favorite Kanye song is. It's Only One. Kanye felt like his mom was singing thru him to our daughter. This song makes me cry every time I hear it. He releases it at midnight tonight on iTunes."
Take a second to let that sink in...that's some pretty powerful stuff.
Kanye's mom passed away back in 2007 at the age of 58 following a plastic surgery procedure.
"Kanye sat there with his family, holding his daughter North on his lap, and listened to his vocals, singing, 'Hello, my only one...,'" a statement released by a spokesperson for Kanye said about the song. "And in that moment, not only could he not recall having sung those words, but he realized that perhaps the words had never really come from him. The process of artistic creation is one that does not involve thinking, but often channeling. And he understood in that moment that his late mother, Dr. Donda West, who was also his mentor, confidante, and best friend, had spoken through him that day."
The emotional ballad, which features Beatles legend, Paul McCartney, is available on iTunes and is available for listening on Kanye's website.
