Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about All Of The Lights (Interlude). By Songfacts®.

This is the third single from Kanye West's fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The song features a star-studded collection of contributing artists, with four from West's G.O.O.D. Friday label: Kid Cudi, John Legend, Ryan Leslie and Charlie Wilson. You may have heard of at least some of the other seven guest performers as well. They are: Alicia Keys, Sir Elton John, Fergie, La Roux's Elly Jackson, Rihanna, The-Dream and Tony Williams. Despite the assortment of stars from different musical genres, West described the sound at a screening of his Runaway short film as "completely seamless and completely ghetto as f---."

One artist you may be surprised to see appearing on this song is British pop/rock singer-songwriter Sir Elton John. However, the Candle in the Wind singer has paired with hip-hop in the past, having performing at the 2001 Grammys with Eminem.

Rihanna told MTV News just prior to the album's release that she jumped at the chance of appearing on this track. "[Kanye] actually played his album to me, like, three months ago, and 'All of the Lights,' that was one of my favorite songs," she recalled. "So when he asked me to come up to the studio at 2 o'clock in the morning, I had to, because I loved it, I knew it was that song."
