Kanye West feat. Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Kid Cudi, Elton John & More "All Of The Lights" - Rihanna Speaks On How It Came About (MP3 Included)

Kanye West's latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is definitely highly anticipated. While listening to it, we think Kanye's song with Rihanna, "All of the Lights," is hot one!

In case you missed it, you can listen here:

Rihanna actually spoke on how it came about:

"[Kanye] actually played his album to me, like, three months ago, and 'All of the Lights,' that was one of my favorite songs,"
Rihanna told MTV News at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards
"So when he asked me to come up to the studio at 2 o'clock in the morning, I had to, because I loved it, I knew it was that song."
Rihanna, of course, lent her vocals to the hook of West's massive posse cut "All of the Lights," which also features contributions from (deep breath) Alicia Keys, John Legend, The-Dream, Fergie, Kid Cudi, Ryan Leslie, Charlie Wilson, Tony Williams and La Roux's Elly Jackson Elton John. You can hear Elton John in the last :45 seconds.

The track — which is featured prominently in West's "Runaway" film — leaked last week, joining a number of other tracks from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that have debuted before the album's release. In addition to the singles "Power" and "Runaway," "Devil in a New Dress" and "Monster" (both of which were featured first as G.O.O.D. Friday tracks) will also appear on Fantasy.

The album, due November 22, will feature five different covers.

A video for this song would be so dope! Let's not get our hopes up though.
