Kanye West’s ‘Only One’ Video Game Gets Official Trailer
Kanye West just unveiled the first trailer to his Only One video game and it's pretty amazing. Has there ever been such a beautiful video game before? The visual made its glorious debut at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, in Los Angeles today (June 13). Only One is a collaboration between 'Ye and popular animation studio Encyclopedia Pictura. The video game trailer features images of angels soaring through pink clouds in heaven and riding Pegasus like horses.
Produced by Mike Dean and Paul McCartney, the single "Only One" for which the video game is named after dropped on New Year's Eve back in 2014 and was to serve as a message to 'Ye's child North West from the point of view of his late mother, Donda. In the trailer above, an alternate, more stirring version of that song plays, echoing the gospel influence that later appeared on The Life of Pablo. The game itself is said to be centered around Donda's entrance into heaven's gates.
Kanye premiered the heartfelt music video for "Only One" featuring little North on Ellen back in January of 2015, but the song was pretty much left alone after that. There were previews of these visuals during Kanye West's massive Madison Square Garden fashion show/album listening for The Life of Pablo back in February of this year, but this is the first full sample of what's to come. There's no release date announced yet, but the theme is clearly spiritual, which is where most of Yeezy's creativity has been geared towards these past two years.
