Leave it Kanye West to pack 11 guests stars, including Elton John, La Roux, John Legend, Kid Cudi, Fergie, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, and The-Dream, all on one song - and make it sound good. Maybe that ego of his isn't so bad after all, huh? Listen below.

On paper it sounds like a disaster, like one of those gather-all-the-celebs benefit songs that's more about unity and cause than quality. But 'Ye pulls it off. Over a frantic assault of horns (that sound like a swaggering State College's football band) and skittering beats, each guest sings or raps about "lights" - flashlights, spotlights, strobe lights, streetlights, et al. Remember Kanye's tune "Flashing Lights"? Yeah. Dude loves lights, huh?

"All of the Lights" is off 'Ye's November 22 release My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Listen below, then tell us what you think in the comment section.
