Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about POWER. By Songfacts®.

This song, in which Chicago rapper Kanye West fires back at his detractors, is the first single from his fifth studio album, titled Dark Twisted Fantasy. The song leaked to the Internet on May 28, 2010.

In this song, West drops an F-bomb aimed at Saturday Night Live for mocking him after his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Music Awards. The tune also explains the Chicago MC's absence from the public eye whilst recording the album and addresses his rumored drinking problem.

The song features soul singer Dwele, who provided the hook to West's 2007 cut "Flashing Lights." He told MTV News about his contribution to this song, insisting it was minimal: "I got there [to the studio], and 'Ye had an idea for what he wanted for the song," the Detroit native said "So that's all his creation. Pretty much all I did was my thing: I added harmonies and lent my instrument for the joint."
