Kanye West – Homecoming (ft. Chris Martin!!??)

Filed under: chris martin, coldplay, hip hop, kanye west, music — brainclutter @ 9:16 am

OK… so I’m listening through Kanye’s Graduation front to back for the first time, and I come across track 12, Homecoming. It begins with some standard beats overlaid with cheesy, MIDI-esque piano that’s actually quite catchy. Kanye pipes up about Chicago and in comes… who?  Chris Martin of bloody Coldplay!

“I’m comin’ home again… Do you think about me now and then? Do you think about me now and theeeeeeeeen? Cuz I’m comin’ home again. Cooooooomin’ home agaaaain.”

Daaaaaaang yo. That’s come gangsta shit comin’ from one of the UK’s favorite sons. It’s almost surreal to hear the front-man from one of my favorite bands layin’ up-tempo chorus vox for Mr. West.  It gets even weirder near the end when he starts harmonizing “Oooh e oh e oh! Oooh e oh e oh!” It was like a throwback to his roots yo, a la Sting.

Listen at YouTube… if you dare!
