It’s no secret that Kanye West thinks his wife, Kim Kardashian, is awesome. In fact, he even wrote a song, which is supposedly about her, that he titled “Awesome.” And now you can hear the ode.
Kanye first performed the song live at the Met Ball in 2013, a few months before the release of Yeezus. A few moments of the song also showed up in an episode of Kim’s reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians in September.
While some of the lyrics are a bit corny, Kanye managed to write some legitimately heartwarming lines that actually seem to bare his soul a bit.
“I’d rather do nothing with you/Than something with somebody new,” Kanye sings in the chorus.
Other praise includes: “You look too good to be at work/You feel too good to ever hurt,” and, “You don’t need to listen to your manager/You’re way too hot for them to handle you.”
Of course, the egocentric Kanye is still egocentric Kanye, so the song switches focus momentarily toward the end of the track when he sings, “Cause baby I’m awesome, also/ I’m also awesome, also/I’m also awesome/Y’all know.”
It’s unclear at this time whether the leak was planned, or whether or not “Awesome” will appear on Kanye’s upcoming eighth studio album So Help Me God.
