The 40 Best Kanye West Songs, an Official Ranking

Kanye West, contrary to what some of his lyrics may say, is just a mortal man. After waltzing into the most controversial era of his career thus far (which is saying something) and a sharp turn into religious indoctrination, this fact has never been more clear.

Nevertheless, Wests body of work remains immaculate; a run of earth-shattering, genre-defining work that has few if any worthy comparisons, certainly not in this millennium. Fortunately (or perhaps, unfortunately), there were plenty to choose from. Below you will find a list that includes work from almost all of his studio albums, his collaborative masterpiece with JAY-Z, Watch the Throne, and a standalone single here or there. Deciding on the top 10 alone took us hours of deliberation; when an artist makes nothing but masterpieces, it becomes increasingly challenging to critique one against the other. Still, we have done it.

These are the 40 Best Kanye West Songs of All Time:

40. Homecoming


Incredible piano riff, Chris Martin of Coldplay on the chorus, recorded at Abbey Road studios in London, likening his Chicago hometown to a long lost girlfriend, what more do you need from this classic Kanye cut?

Bianca

39. Get Em High

While Kanye has a plethora of tracks exploring the depths of human existence, sometimes you just need a song to pass a joint around to, and Get Em High delivers. Talib Kweli watched Kanye whip up the incredibly dank beat in 15 minutes, and ended up hopping on the track last minute, with Commons verses already recorded. Although the Clipse-esque beat isnt representative of Kanye at his most inventive, its a damn good soundtrack to fill the room with smoke.

Bianca

38. FML

FML is Kanye at his most candid, self-aware and impassioned. Accompanied with a stellar feature from The Weeknd, who rides FMLs beat perfectly, the track is one of the most vivid journeys into the mesmerizing mindset of the musicianand one of the best Kanyesongs yet. The double entendre of the title focuses on Yes lust and love hes arguably still not sure which one will conquer which. And that spectral outro? Utterly haunting and fucking brilliant.

Jacob

37. The New Workout Plan


Sometimes Kanyes got a sense of humor, and when he does its glorious. His satire of workout mixtapes is a certified jam, but also serves as a commentary on the ridiculous demands put on women to look good. The music video is a campy delight, featuring the forever iconic Anna Nicole Smith as well as Tracie Ellis Ross pretending to be a French video girl.

Bianca

36. Ghost Town

The quality of ye seems irrevocably tied to the tumultuous release that delivered it unto the world, but its not without its pleasures. First and foremost of these is Ghost Town, the records dazzling emotional peak it is the only time on the album that Kanyes hubris feels justified by the craft on display. And, if nothing else, it will forever be enshrined as a showcase for 070 Shakes show-stopping guest spot.

Jake

35. Real Friends

The transition from FML into Real Friends is a thing of beauty. Remember when this song dropped on Yes SoundCloud before the album dropped? It created social media bedlam, and uncontrollable excitement from even Yes harshest of critics. It remains one of those songs you play with your day ones mid-session, bleary eyed as the morning light trickles in head nods not needing to say anything just knowing looks aplenty. One for the ages.

Jacob

34. Fade


Classic Chicago house samples and a dash of Autotune with an exultant drum breakdown. What. a. jam. Plus, that iconic Teyana Taylor video.One of the best Kanye West songs and videos of all time.

Bianca

33. Send It Up

There are a veritable Greek chorus worth of bizarre guests teleporting in from various other musical worlds on Yeezus to assault the listener, but few have the immediacy of the presence of King Louie. His wild cackle is married to what can only be described as an air raid siren in the songs opening moments, but it is at the end, after an excellent verse from Ye, that we are left with one of the albums most mysteriously reflective ruminations, delivered atop a jarring beat: Memories dont live like people do.

Jake

32. Hey Mama

Hey Mama was originally a beautiful dedication to his mother when Ye dropped it on Late Registration. It then manifested into an utterly timeless tear-jerker after Ye performed the track at the Grammys in 2008, after Donda had just passed. Poignant and powerful, its impossible to watch that rendition and not and get chills running up your spine.

Jacob

31. Everything I Am

Linking up with DJ Premier for this motivational master-stroke, Everything I Am is one of Yeezys most-underrated songs from Graduation (and on this list.) Twinkling piano, Premiers scratching and brilliantly introspective lyrics all make for an absolutely golden combination. Distinctly Chicago, distinctly superb.

Jacob

30. Gorgeous

Juxtaposing beautiful production alongside scathing critique of American racial injustice, Gorgeous actually depicts the ugliness of an America which continues to overlook minority rights particularly with Donald Trump in charge now. Best bar? Malcolm West snapping on Whats a black Beatle anyway, a fucking roach? Genius.

Jacob

29. On Sight

The opening track to Kanyes seventh studio album, On Sight is a full-on audio assault of an introduction to the world of Yeezus. Daft Punks metallic synths waft in on the track, and blown-out drums provide the backdrop for a fired-up Yeezy. Although less than three minutes long, its emblematic of Kanyes constant quest to innovate not only his own tracks, but contemporary music as a whole.

Bianca

28. Good Morning


Both the best possible song to open Graduation and absolutely the best song to start your day, Good Morning is disarmingly simple and incredibly potent. Whether its facing the sort of life-changing event like the graduation of its lyrics or easing yourself out of a particularly rough patch, this song is here, a healing salve for all wounds.

Jake

27. Mercy


It is a weepin and a moanin and a gnashing of teeth goes what was surely the darkest sample to hover out of car radios in the summer of 2012. This is the cream of the crop for the G.O.O.D. Music and Kanye West best songs subgenre of his catalog. On Mercy,the outing is a pitch-black work of show and tell; no matter how absurdist the bars coming out of Big Sean, Pusha-T, and 2 Chainz are, their humor is obscured by the cryptically foreboding production that surrounds them. Until light comes in the form of Mr. West, descending down from the heavens as a radiant chorus delivers him unto us, the mere mortals lost in endless suffering. He is a merciful lord indeed.

Jake

26. Famous

Remember when this track single-handedly ruined any credibility Taylor Swift ever had? Good times. Famous is production dynamite, with that Sister Nancy sample representing one of Yes best chops in recent times. Rihanna embodies fame itself on her brief appearances on the track, and Ye is at his braggadocious best on this bountiful beat.

Jacob

25. Love Lockdown


Love Lockdown is the pulsing, bleeding focal point of 808s & Heartbreak; the torn heart of an album that is in itself a torn heart. That beat stays the same, gliding evenly throughout the track even as it is attacked by bouts of forceful piano, hand-claps, drums, and Kanye casually revolutionizing a tool called Autotune. Looking back years later, it holds up as one of the best Kanye songs of all timeandshows how revolutionary Ye was years before Autotune would take over music.It ends as it began, with that beat, a pressing reminder of the utter devastation that lies beneath it all.

Jake

24. Blame Game

Its tracks like this that re-affirm the fact that Ye was in a completely different stratosphere to any other artist when he dropped MBDTF. Juggling his love/hate relationship with his special others (fame/females), it also contains one of the best skits in hip-hop history from Chris Rock. Yeezy taught us well.

Jacob

23. Bound 2


Quite possibly one of the most despised music videos of all time, Bound 2 is canonical Kanye. Passing through hyperreal pastoral landscapes wearing tie-dye and plaid shirts on a motorcycle ride with his dream girl Kim, Kanye distorts classic Americana tropes into his own utopian vision. Unlike the rest of Yeezus, Kanye is back to his sampling ways with soaring gospel vocals, but he ingeniously juxtaposes the old school vibes with a blown-out bass line on the chorus.

Bianca

22. Good Life


Good Life, simply, was Kanye at his happiest. Alongside the effervescent and on-form T-Pain, it remains one of Yes most uplifting tunes. And props to T-Pain for shouting out his affectionate Grandma.

Jacob

21. All of the Lights


Another triumphant banger from the pantheon of the best Kanye West songs. That full orchestra arrangement, those drums?! Truly a team effort, The-Dream wrote the hook, and Rihanna, Fergie, Alicia Keys, La Roux and Elton John (?!) lent their vocals to the track.

Bianca

20. Diamonds From Sierra Leone


Kanye has become infamous for finding the most obscure samples to cull beats from, so for him to pluck a theme song as-is from a film in one of the most successful franchises in cinematic history makes this track something of an anomaly. But the big band instrumentation utilized in John Barrys James Bond score proved to fit in with fellow film composer Jon Brions work on Late Registration like pieces of a puzzle. It works so well that even Kanyes most explicitly activist lyrics of his career fit into the picture without fuss.

Jake

19. Ultralight Beam

Kanye called The Life of Pablo his gospel album, but that description really only applies to this track, one of the most experimental and haunting tracks he has ever put to tape. In between vast silences that seem to last for hours, a synth warble resembling an underwater organ hazily floats to the surface. And despite functioning as an opening statement, hes barely present; this song belongs to the awe-inducing work of gospel legends like Kirk Franklin and, of course, that king-making verse from Chance the Rapper. Its the sound of Ye simultaneously honoring his inspirations and crowning the next generation.

Jake

18. All Falls Down


I pined and I pined for this to make top 10. The unforgettable guitar riff. The legendary video where Kanye goes through the X-Ray machine. Kanye talking about materialism, societal flaws AND an introverted look at his own insecurities in 2004? Benchmark-setting genius.

Built on a Lauryn Hill sample that was allowed by the songstress but only if she wasnt singing Ye instead recruited Syleena Johnson, who was reportedly in the recording studio opposite him when he was producing the track, so used her instead at the last minute. All Falls Down is one of the best Kanye songs in his repertoire and ironically underpins Kanyes rise to being one of the greatest artists of all time.

Jacob

17. New Slaves

Like many others, my first association of Yeezus was sneaking out in the dark of night to catch one of the croppings of secret projections displayed on buildings around the world. What appeared was a ghoulish visage of Kanyes face stretched to billboard size, rasping the lyrics to a song Id later learn was called New Slaves, his eyes full of a purposeful fire. Even now, years later, I see his eyes as I listen, channeling a righteous and furious anger built from centuries of oppression. His message, taken seriously from the first, has become prophetic.

Jake

16. Monster

Acknowledging both his status as a controversial figure and his desire to create an incredibly successful hit, Monster balances Kanyes increasingly avant-garde production style with his cultivated pop sensibility. Bon Ivers on the intro and outro, JAY-Z and Rick Ross hop on the track, and Nicki Minaj comes in with one of the greatest verses of all time, ever.

Bianca

15. Black Skinhead


In an alternate universe,Ye fronts a punk band, and Black Skinhead is the best Kanye West song hes ever produced. It also happens to be the song that he frequently smashes his guitar to. High-octane and cathartic, he casually throws in anti-racism and anti-establishment sentiments while solidifying his status as rap god.

Bianca

14. Slow Jamz

One of the most nostalgic songs of all time. Slow Jamz immediately transports you back to the most halcyon of days whenever its played. The song name itself pretty much spawned its own genre. On countless sex and party starter playlists it invokes ALL the feels. Whether its that timeless Michael Jackson bar, or Twista taking over from Kanye to mesmerizingly ride the beat with his incessant flow, this one is an absolute classic in every sense of the word.

Jacob

13. POWER

Ye deliberately steered away from making something radio-friendly on the opus that is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but POWER is the closest thing we have on the record resembling the structure of a pop song. But even by those standards, this track is an entirely different beast. With a beat that could quake the earth, a sample of infinitely melismatic war chants, and a barrage of one liners that rain down like bullets (At the end of the day/ God damn it Im killing this shit), this is Kanye firing on all cylinders; the most decadent effort on an album of maximalism. No wonder he has to end the song by jumping out the window.

Jake

12. Touch the Sky


Another early classic, Touch the Sky samples Curtis Mayfields Move On Up and its slowed-down horns are a perfect compliment to Blazes massive drums. But its the wayYe switches from a smooth flow to non-Autotuned vocals with ease that cements this as one of the best Kanye songs. The incredible video with Pamela Anderson provides triumphant 70s Evel Knievel vibes, foreshadowing the out-of-this-world trajectory Kanye would follow as a musician and pop culture icon in the years to follow.

Bianca

11. Niggas in Paris


This song was performed by Kanye West and JAY-Z 11 times in a row during their tour stop in the titles namesake city. Armed with that knowledge, do we really need to explain how great it is?

Jake

10. Cant Tell Me Nothing


For the last few months of my high school career, I was late every single day. Literally. Bless you poor Mrs. Scales, but I could not possibly have made time to care about physics in my marijuana-addled days of being a 17-year old. And each day, as I pulled into the parking lot, I made a ritual of firing up Cant Tell Me Nothing, slowly rolling past the empty cars just so I could yell Class started two hours ago, OH, AM I LATE?! There has simply been no better anthem for pridefully having zero (zilch, nada) fucks to give written in this lifetime.

Jake

9. Stronger


On Stronger, we have peak shutter shades / Louis Vuitton Don era Kanye. Hes confident enough to use a Daft Punk sample (later confident enough to hire them for a performance at the Grammys), and to say that he makes it work would be an understatement. The track was mixed down 75 times, but Kanye still wasnt satisfied, so he enlisted Timbaland to re-do the drums. A pop masterpiece, Stronger stands strong as one of the best Kanye West songs in the early years of his career and served to solidified Kanyes position in the mainstream consciousness.

Bianca

8. Heartless


Kanye strips back the maximalism and puffed-up optimism of his previous albums and pares it all down with a Roland-808 drum machine and Autotuned melodies on Heartless. In stark contrast to the warm samples and old-school hip-hop sounds hes used in the past, here hes dramatic, cold, and detached, reminding us that although hes at the top of the rap game in 2008, hes still human and feels the isolating depths of loneliness. But what beauty he can spin from it.

Bianca

7. Devil in a New Dress

What. A. Beat. Perhaps the standout from Kanyes most masterful album, it captures his unique style as a rapper. From the scintillating Put your hands to the constellations/ The way you look should be a sin, you my sensation, through to stereotypically wry, Thats Dior Homme, not Dior Homie, its Ye at his most acerbic. Then theres Rick Ross, who casually wraps up proceedings with his greatest guest verse of all time. Goosebumps.

Jacob

6. Through the Wire

To paraphrase a line he would utilize a few albums down the road, every superhero needs his back story, and as far as origins go, you just cant make this shit up. The account of Yeezy laying down his bars through a jaw wired shut after a frighteningly close experience with violent death is rightfully the stuff of legend, but the track holds up just as well without the story. It is one of the best examples of Kanyes early, pitch-shifted sample-driven work, and a masterfully-crafted interpolation of the funk and soul records he grew up listening to.

Jake

5. Gold Digger


One of Kanyes first mainstream hits, winning praise from Spike Lee and your friends cool dad alike, Gold Digger is an emblematic early Kanye track from his sophomore album. Showcasing his innate musical knowledge with a re-appropriated Ray Charles classic performed by Jamie Foxx and a surprise synth-coda that is a clear nod to Stevie Wonders mammoth-hit Superstition, the song deliriously upends decades of pop music into one lean, mean, unstoppable machine. Bonus points for the percussion and Kanyes laugh-out-loud bars. All together now, WE WANT PRE-NUP, YEAH!

Bianca

4. Blood on the Leaves

Yeezus influence is unparalleled; whispers of its stylistic flourishes are ubiquitous in hip-hop and electronic music alike. It was immediately hailed as an instant-classic within days of its initial release, an assessment which if possible may have served to undersell its quality.

Instant-classic is also a term that feels inevitable for Blood on the Leaves, a towering pinnacle of anguish in an album full of it. Above the mercilessly crushing beats, high above the ululations of that Nina Simone sample, even higher than the soaring lines of Autotune (an instrument West somehow redefines yet again), is the raw, emotional honesty that courses through each second of this song. Remember when we were so young, when I would hold you he bemoans, plumbing the depths of his soul and serving it to us on a gilded platter. As far as lamentations go, this one is nothing short of exquisite.

Jake

3. Jesus Walks


Jesus Walks is an anthemic masterpiece; both doggedly militaristic in tone while simultaneously holding a pertinent message, one that still rings true today. Ye lays down the gauntlet from the get-go, We at war with terrorism, racism and most of all, we at war with ourselves, in what goes on to become what is perhaps Kanyes most revered track.

The whole cult of Kanye West was spawned from this very song Jesus Walks is soul-stirring, invigorating, fervor-filled you name it. Its Kanye at his most transcendent; ultimately foreshadowing his transition into Yeezus himself. A requiem for the old Kanye, who has since become considered raps foremost iconoclast.

Jacob

2. Flashing Lights


Flashing Lights was recorded in 2007, a decade removed from Kanyes now monolithic status in style, music and popular culture. The name itself earmarked what he has endured throughout this decade unprecedented media attention and unparalleled super-stardom its all right there, summed up in its most succinct form.

It contains all the best elements of a classic Ye song. Stirring strings, archetypal bars about luxury and lust and a killer hook. All of which accompanied an iconic, Spike Jonze-directed video, which sees Ye beginning to flex the creative muscles that now keep him firmly on the lips of even the deepest chasms of the internet. Hes now a certified SEO-goldmine for any publication youre now reading this article because Kanye West was in the name of this piece. Why? Because of the sheer visionary brilliance of tracks like Flashing Lights.

Jacob

1. Runaway


In a catalogue that spans decades, hundreds of tracks, an army of collaborators and a smorgasbord of musical styles, Runaway was decidedly and unanimously our choiceto close out the list of best Kanye West songs. Now, why?

One cannot overlook the context of its creation; in which this song was the definitive statement in an album that was a true make-or-break moment in absolving his sins in the eyes of a public still reeling from that fabled mic theft. In a record full of self-flagellation, Runaway is the towering peak of Yes benediction, a shrieking wail from the depths of his soul acknowledging how far his mighty hubris had made him fall.

And we accept his apology, because Runaway is nothing short of nine minutes of sheer perfection. Never before has Kanyes tinkering with Autotune produced a result as awe-inspiring as the songs coda, a duet with a cello that takes up half of the tracks runtime. Never before has he created a melody as instantly recognizable or as simplistic as the one gently pressed in those opening piano keys. Never before, and never since, has his work ever been so ravishingly beautiful.
