He explained the song had been influenced by his love of Portishead and called the track an “Apartment song- for when you’re chilling at home.”
Kanye talked about many of his collaborators at the Q&A that followed last night’s screening.
He confirmed he’d been in the studio with Alicia Keys, M.I.A, Kid Cudi, Mos Def and Santigold during sessions for his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
