    The Paul McCartney-assisted "FourFiveSeconds" is far from the first time Kanye West and Rihanna have come together for a hit, which they demonstrated during their respective Super Bowl Saturday Sets in Arizona last night.

    Kanye West sat down for an interview with Ellen today, as we learned earlier in the week. The rapper did not reveal the title of his forthcoming album, and that's because he doesn't have one yet. However, he did give Ellen the first look on his "Only One" music video, directed by Spike Jonze and starring his daughter North West. After premiering the music video for his lead single, Ye spoke with Ellen about his family and business, and how his attitude has changed since getting married and having a child.

    Yeezus was filled with unexpected moments, but King Louie's feature on "Send It Up" was one of the biggest surprises. Since guesting on the experimental record, Louie has continued to release some of Chicago's best music, and may or may not have inked a deal with Drake's OVO Sound label (if not he's campaigning pretty hard for it).

For now, you'll have to head there to listen to the acoustic guitar-led record.
