Kanye West - "Real Friends"

Apparently, The Life of Pablo is the album where Kanye finally jumps the shark, finally falls flat on that big ego of his. Nonsense: It's plainly terrific. "Real Friends" is a companion piece of sorts to 808s & Heartbreak's "Welcome to Heartbreak," which also documented the loneliness and alienation that fame creates. Great song -- and it's far from the only one on Pablo.
