Before the release of "Power", we assumed Kanye would dip below the high cultural cache he'd held for a good five years, that his next album was surely a flop, and that we'd need another savior to revive the state of hip hop. Fortunately, you can just be fucking good at making music. "Power" starts with a chant and some claps, escalates with a siren, and maintains its force with a thundering drum-bass combo and a well-placed King Crimson sample. He's not going away easy.

This song is just perfect. Sampling, lyrics, message, music video and everything is just good about this track. When the beat switches up its just perfection.

PERFECT

Complete with one of the best samples in all of hip hop and a fantastic beat to boot, Kanye West releases one of the greatest songs of the 2010's. Power is, as the name implies, an incredibly powerful song that encapsulates everything--the good AND the bad--about Kanye West as both a person and a musician.
