We like this track. We like Kanye’s version, too. This is neither a major improvement or an abomination, simply an equally-good use of West’s material.
It certainly bodes well for Mateo’s forthcoming mixtape Love & Stadiums, for which the Kerry “Krucial” Brothers-produced “Power” is the first single. Not many artists could get away with taking on He of the Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasies, but having heard Mateo’s effort, we say more power to him.
