Following up ML Reader Safari’s comment in the Homecoming Entry, he tipped us off to something. Homecoming uses a verse from a 2002 track called Home Kanye did with John Legend. Recycled verses are kind of a bummer (but Kanye did it on his last album too using his Wack Niggas verse on Bring Me Down). We should’ve known something was odd when we remembered a good amount of the song after about 1 listen (we were big on Get Well Soon eons ago). In the big picture of things we still like Homecoming more than Home. Kanye sounds better, Chris Martin fits in better than John Legend, and the beat is more hypnotizing.
Anyway, check the original.
