Kanye West debuts ‘Only One’ music video by Spike Jonze

'Ye plays daddy to North West in the lo-fi clip

Kanye West is showing off a softer side with his music video for "Only One". The lo-fi clip is shot by Spike Jonze in the trademark home video style the director perfected back in his skateboarding days. With Paul McCartney on keyboard, the video features Kanye and North West standing around in an empty field. As it begins to rain, Yeezy tenderly shields his one-year-old kid from the drizzle. We've come a long, long way from the "Bound 2" days, huh?

Yeezy premiered a teaser on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. He even opened up to Ellen about fatherhood, saying: "I think I'm a better human being because of her (Kim Kardashian) and because of my daughter, and I have always someone to think about going home to: something for me to not only to be brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family, because there's things I've done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people, or for culture, in a way. So now, I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family that I have to protect, too." 

Did he just compare Taylor Swift to a tank? Discuss

Ye also elaborated on the anticipated follow-up to Yeezus. In a nutshell, don't hold your breath. "We’re still trying to find the vibe, he explained. "There's this transition from what I felt when I did Yeezus to what I feel now and we’re just creating, so we haven’t found it yet."

BONUS! Kanye's interview on the Ellen Show also led to Hudson Mohawke's first ever appearance on a daytime television show.
