Kanye West debuts precious new music video starring daughter North

The Ellen DeGeneres Show Since the birth of his daughter, North West, Kanye West and his public persona havebeen on anemotional ride of sorts. The singer, betterknown for his sudden outbursts and excessive displays of hubris, has calmed down in recent days to apparently focus on sweet and heartfelt, albeit unpolished ballads like "Only One" (which features organ work by the famed former-Beatle Paul McCartney ). On Thursday, Yeezus visitedThe Ellen DeGeneres Show to premiere the music video for "Only One" and talk about how fatherhood has made him a changed man. The short clip, directed by Spike Jonze , features the singerstrolling through a soggy field with his daughter on a cloudy day. If you have aheart, the video will pluck at your heartstrings and inspirea million waves of "aww." It also serves as a reminder that 2015 Kanyeis refreshingly not about thebull, the masks , and grandiose statements comparing himself to great historic figures. This isKanye, doting dad. Yet perhaps there's something manipulative about Kanye's willingness to parade his daughter so nonchalantly around in a musicvideo.According to The Daily Beast :"Using footage of Kanye palling around with North West in the clip is an excellent tool to humanize the rapper. But, also, Kanye is using his daughter as a tool in his career.

Kanye West & Dame Dash Reunited at the 2015 BET Honors

When it starts to rain, West gingerly covers his child's head with the hood of her jacket as he holds her in his arms. Watch the video below. Aside from "Only One", West also shared his perspectives on marriage and fatherhood. "I've learned how to shut up more," he conceded, laughing along with the audience. "I think I'm a better human being because of her [wife Kim Kardashian] and because of my daughter, and I have always someone to think about going home to: something for me to not only to be brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family, because there's things I've done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people, or for culture, in a way. So now, I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family that I have to protect, too." He also elaborated on his partnership with Adidas , as well the recent, drastic changes to his sound, remarking: "the definition of crazy is trying to do the same thing and expecting different results - so I tried something different over the past couple years, and I actually got some good results from it too".

He added that he has been less angry and is focusing more on his work within the film and fashion industry. "For me there was so many things I wanted to do with film and clothing and I just didn't have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being that I was a rapper," explained West.
