Say You Will

Say You Will

Kanye West

The first track off Kanye West’s album 808s & Heartbreak. Sung primarily in autotune, and seen as a departure from old school Ye.

Kanye has explained in concert that this song is “about an ex-girlfriend you call on Friday nights just to have sex” and she “says she’ll come over but you wait all night and she still doesn’t come knocking on your door”

This song is highly criticised because of the prominent use of the auto-tune effect. This song (and album) was groundbreaking for Kanye West as an artist. As he demonstrated something totally different to what he usually did, people became worried that Kanye West pandered to the mainstream music audience in producing and writing this album.

On October 19th, 2015, Kanye released a remastered version, featuring violinist Caroline Shaw.
