Nick Jonas Covered Kanye West's "Only One": Listen
The song's message is personal to ‘Ye, but it’s also touched plenty of people — including Nick.

Kanye West premiered his Adidas collection not with a traditional runway, but a slow, military-style roll call in a dark room. His live debut of “Wolves,” at Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary show, was on a set with a low ceiling that forced himself, Sia and Chicago rap newcomer Vic Mensa to crouch down as they sang.

The performances promoting West’s seventh solo album have been claustrophobic — and the latest live rendition of “Only One,” featuring Paul McCartney, is no different.

West performed at Scandinavian TV show Skavlan last night (February 27) while illuminated by a single spotlight that slowly changed shapes, from a square to a circle and a triangle. This stage set-up made him seem completely isolated, even though host Fredrik Skalvan was standing less than five feet away.
