Kanye West’s ‘All of the Lights’ Remix to Feature New Drake Verse, Big Sean
Complex reports that Drake laid down a new verse, while West protege Big Sean — whose first studio album is in the works — also contributes vocals to the remix.
The album version of ‘All of the Lights’ is officially credited to West featuring Kid Cudi and Rihanna, but John Legend, The-Dream, Elly Jackson of La Roux, Alicia Keys, Fergie and Elton John all appear on the track.
Drake had recorded a verse for the original version as well, but it didn’t make the final cut. At the time, MTV reported Drake was cool with not appearing on the song:
“Kanye’s creative process is ever-changing. We make music differently. I make what comes to me and I hate changing it, whereas ‘Ye will change something 30 or 40 times to get it perfect. To each their own, and the change was to put all those people on it, and I wasn’t one of them. That’s completely OK.”
The fourth single from West’s acclaimed album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,’ ‘All of the Lights’ has reached No. 29 on the singles chart, so far.
