"Bound 2"

Kanye signs off on Yeezus, easily the most challenging, polarizing album of his career, with the surprisingly pleasant "Bound 2." Juxtaposed with he and Kim welcoming their new daughter to the world on Sunday, it sounds like a goodbye to his old bachelor ways as well. "One good girl is worth a thousand b----es," he raps. Not that loving Kanye is easy: According to this song, a whole lot of forgiving and forgetting (along with the occasional threesome) is a prerequisite. Luckily, Kanye flashes a whole lot of charm to seal the deal, with a smart combination of chipmunked soul samples (a nice reminder of Kanye's College Dropout heyday) and a husky bridge from Charlie Wilson. In the dark, disturbing world of Yeezus-era Kanye, it's the closest you'll get to an "I do."
