  • This love ballad was penned by Kanye West as a tribute to his wife Kim Kardashian West.

    Why would you listen to people trying to hate on you
    At least you know there's nothing new
    Stop everything you're doing now
    Because baby you're awesome


    West debuted the track at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" gala in New York City on May 7, 2013 before the release of his Yeezus album.
