This John Legend featured song finds West doling out blame over a deteriorating relationship. It samples the melancholy piano groove from cult electronic musician Aphex Twin's 2001 cut "Avril 14th
According to Aphex Twin, aka Richard D. James, West and his team approached him about the sample, then cut him out of the equation. "Is it a sample?" he asked Pitchfork
. "I actually don't know what it ended up being in the end, I'm so slack. I know that he tried to f-----g rip me off and claim that he'd written it, and they tried to get away with not paying."
"I was really helpful, and when they first sent it to me," James continued. "I was like, 'Oh, I can re-do that for you, if you like,' because they'd sampled it really badly and time-stretched it and there was loads of artifacts. I was like, 'I'll just replay it for you at that speed if you want.' And they totally didn't even say 'hello' or 'thanks,' they just replied with, 'It's not yours, it's ours, and we're not even asking you any more.'"
