Kanye West Makes Us Stronger

Kanye West– Stronger (A-Trak Remix)

Graduation

(Roc-A-Fella Records; 2007)

Kanye West is…well Kanye West.  Love him or hate him, he makes great music.  His beats are unmistakeable, and his rhymes are unforgettable.  Throw him as a guest rapper on a track and it automatically climbs to the top of the charts.  This happens for a reason.  The man knows what he’s doing.  Kanye West has changed the face of hip-hop and popular music as we know it.  Who has ever heard of a hip-hop artist wearing a suit and a bowtie?  The man exudes style, and it comes through in his music.  Now don’t forget that before his prolific solo career, Kanye West was an in demand producer, and still is.  He’s created hits for Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Ludacris, and Janet Jackson.  Yeah, he might act like an asshole sometimes, but the man’s a genius.  Enough said.  Oh wait, one more thing.  His music videos are sick!

I just want to say, why are other Daft Punk fans upset about this song?  It doesn’t make any sense.  This track is amazing.  Yeah, of course the original is good.  So is this.  They are two completely different songs, two completely different styles, and should be judged as such.  Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger is a classic.  Kanye’s use of this sample is phenomenal.  Daft Punk cleared the sample for a reason.  Daft Punk played it live with him at the 50th annual Grammy awards for a reason.  Quite simply, because this track is hot.  I’ll admit it’s annoying when you hear people singing “Work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger” and they think Kanye came up with it.  Well, enlighten them then!  But seriously, suck it up Daft Punk fans, Kanye killed it. And have you seen the music video?  Cassie is sexy as hell. Daft Punk is sexy as hell.  One of the best music videos I’ve ever seen.  But if you honestly thought I was going to waste my time posting a song as big as Stronger that everyone’s heard already, you’re crazy.  So instead, I present A-Trak’s remix of Kanye West‘s Stronger. Enjoy!
