Kanye West has been slowly unleashing Yeezy season since the dawn of 2015, with his latest unveil being the new single “All Day” which he recently premiered during a rousing performance at the BRIT Awards. The new track, produced by Velous and French Montana, shows a different, more familiar side of West than his upcoming album’s previous releases “Only One” and “FourFiveSeconds.” MTV recently caught up with Velous and got some insight on the making of West’s latest offering. V, a 21-year-old out of Kingston, New York, says he initially gave the track to French, to whom he signed with last June.
“I made that beat while I was sitting on my boys couch watching Saturday Night Live,” he said of the beat making process. “I usually do everything in the studio, but I did that on a couch with a keyboard on my lap just chilling…I guess Kanye was rocking with it, so he gave it to Kanye.”
Produced by French Montana and Velous, “All Day” is the fourth song West has released from the album since debuting his Paul McCartney collaboration “Only One” on New Year’s Eve. “FourFiveSeconds,” West’s song with McCartney and Rihanna, followed, with the track appearing on both Rihanna and West’s albums. Recently, West debuted “Wolves,” a melancholic track featuring vocals from Sia and Chicago rapper Vic Mensa at his Yeezy Boost fashion show.
