Track Description
"Power" (sometimes stylized as "POWER") is a song by American hip hop recording artist Kanye West, released as the lead single from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). The song features additional vocals by soul singer Dwele and is co-produced by West and Symbolyc One. It is built around a sample of "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson. After having recorded it in Hawaii, West reported that he spent 5000 hours composing "Power". In its lyrics, West comments about the United States and his critics. Its chorus features an abrasive vocal-riff.

"Power" was West's comeback single following his 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak and his controversial incident at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The song received acclaim from music critics and it was listed amongst the best tracks of 2010 by several publications, including Time, Pitchfork Media, Spin, and Rolling Stone. Critics described it as a return to form for West, praising its intricate production, lyrical merit, and scope. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 53rd Grammy Awards.

The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at position 23 and thereafter declined. The track was promoted by a music video, which was directed by Marco Brambilla. The video features a long take of the camera pulling away from West. The video received positive reviews from critics and received two nominations for MTV Video Music Awards. West performed the song on Saturday Night Live, at the 2010 BET Awards, at the 2011 Coachella Music Festival, and his Watch the Throne Tour. When performing the song, West often wore clothes made from red leather. A remix of the track featuring rapper Jay-Z was released on August 20, 2010.
