All of the Lights (5:00)

Cover of The Bling Ring: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

From The Bling Ring: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

“All of the Lights” is a song from Kanye West’s fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The track features drop-ins from Rihanna, Alicia Keys, John Legend, The-Dream, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Elton John (on piano), Ryan Leslie, Charlie Wilson, Tony Williams and La Roux singer Elly Jackson. The song was written by Kanye West, Jeff Bhasker, Malik Jones, Warren Trotter and produced by Kanye West and Jeff Bkasker. The video edit included only Rihanna and Kid Cudi’s vocals, but Rihanna was the only credited featured artist.

According to the All of the Lights Songfacts, Drake also recorded vocals for this track but was dropped from the final version. During an appearance on Shade 45’s morning show the rapper explained that despite not knowing why he was removed, he’s cool about it. Said Drake: “We make music differently. I make what comes to me and I hate changing it, whereas ‘Ye will change something 30 or 40 times to get it perfect. To each their own, and the change was to put all those people on it, and I wasn’t one of them. That’s completely OK.”

    Kid Cudi's part in both the video and the song are just awful. I still love the song though.

    ok, so Fergie does the female rap, and Alicia the ranom "Oh" on the end, but what's Elly Jackson's part? really didn't found her in the music.

    I love the production on this (except the Fergie part, which is just annoying). So is Elton John the one who plays piano for the interlude?
