Kanye West - "All Of the Lights"
Producer: Kanye West, Jeff Bhasker (co. prod)
After hitting public and personal nadirs in the wake of the Taylor Swift scandal, Kanye West looked inward and decided to craft his grandest statement yet, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. At the core of the album, Kanye and co-producer Jeff Bhasker enlisted an army of musicians and featured artists to mold MBDTF's most triumphant moment, "All of the Lights." Clearest among the dense orchestral arrangement is the bombastic horn section, comprising three trumpets, three French horns, and two trombones–a purposeful combination that simultaneously gives "All of the Lights" its weight and its sense of ascent.
