Kanye is back with the uptempo track, “Power,” from his upcoming album, Good Ass Job.  Soul singer Dwele joins him on the song that was produced by Symbolyc One and samples British rock band King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man.”
 
“Power’s” title comes from the song’s chorus in which Kanye says, “I guess every superhero needs his theme music/No one man should have all that power.”
 
West also hits back at Saturday Night Live for the show’s skit about the rapper’s incident at the MTV awards last September in which he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech. “F— SNL and the whole cast,” he says.
