This is the opening track from Kanye West's fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The song finds West musing on the relentless pursuit of hedonistic and lecherous pleasures, rhyming, "The plan was to drink until the pain was over, but what’s worse, the pain or the hangover?"
The song is introduced by a narrative by New York MC Nicky Minaj, in which she reworks in an English accent a poem by Roald Dahl that itself revisits the classic fairy tale Cinderella.
This contains samples of "In High Places" by English multi-instrumentalist composer Mike Oldfield.
