Kanye West said his later mother Donda helped him pen his latest single, "Only One” -- speaking to him through his daughter North.

"My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter," said West, who worked on the New Year’s Day release with music icon Paul McCartney.

The Yeezus rapper said that North was sitting on his lap when he started singing, "Hello, my only one,” noting that it’s the definition of his first name.

West’s mother Donda tragically died  at 58 from heart ailments in Nov. 10, 2007, a day after undergoing plastic surgery.

The new release received a ringing endorsement from West’s wife Kim Kardashian, who said it’s her favorite song out of her husband’s musical catalogue.
