Kanye Brings Out Elton John, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, La Roux for New Single
While a whole host of MCs have been guesting on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Fridays series, including Pusha T, Common and Kid Cudi, the eccentric hip-hop star is bringing something new to the table for his latest single “All the Lights”: singers. The third single off his upcoming My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy will feature a number of notable vocalists.

A report on Hip Hop DX points out that West told the audience at the L.A. screening of his film Runaway last night (October 18) that the upcoming cut will feature 11 guest spots. The talent includes Rihanna, Alicia Keys, John Legend, The-Dream, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Ryan Leslie, Fergie, La Roux’s Elly Jackson, and, most interestingly, the legendary Elton John. Kid Cudi also spits on the cut.

If you were anticipating full verses from each artist, you’re going to be disappointed with Ye’s decision to take bits and pieces of each singer’s performance, but the rapper promises “All the Lights” to be “completely seamless and completely ghetto as fuck.”

If you can’t wait until the November 22 release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the track will be played during Runaway’s U.S. television debut on MTV, VH1, BET and MTV2 on October 23. Sorry, Canada, there’s still no official air date for here yet.
