Songfacts®:

  • On this Lil Wayne-assisted track West is trying to convince himself that he's over a break-up. Like most of the other tracks on 808s & Heartbreak this alludes to the ending of his 18-month engagement to the designer Alexis Phifer.
  • Lil Wayne spoke to MTV News about working with West. He said: "'Ye is an innovator, so it's always a pleasure to be around someone so creative, because it drives you to be more or just as."
  • Director Spike Jonze helmed a 15-minute long-form video starring Kanye West, which featured this song. The title, We Were Once a Fairytale, is taken from the song's lyrics. West and Jonze previously collaborated on the singer's promo for "Flashing Lights."
