Kanye West - Stronger

Work it, make it, do it,
Makes us harder, better, faster, stronger!

[Played in background, continuously:]
Work it harder, make it better,
Do it faster, makes us stronger,
More than ever, never over,
Our work is never over.

[Chorus:]
N-now th-th-that that don't kill me
Can only make me stronger
I need you to hurry up now
'Cause I can't wait much longer
I know I got to leave right now
'Cause I can't get much wronger
Man I've been waitin' all night now
That's how long I've been on you

I need you right now
I need you right now

Let's get lost tonight
You could be my black Kate Moss tonight
Play secretary, I'm the boss tonight
And you don't give a fuck what they all say right?
Awesome, the Christian and Christian Dior
Damn, they don't make 'em like this anymore
I ask 'cause I'm not sure
Do anybody make real shit anymore?
Bow in the presence of greatness
'Cause right now thou has forsaken us
You should be honored by my lateness
That I would even show up to this fake shit
So go ahead go nuts go ape shit
Especially in my pastel on my ape shit
Act like you can't tell who made this
New gospel homey, take six, and take this, haters

[Chorus:]

I need you right now
I need you right now

Me likey

I don't know if you got a man or not,
If you made plans or not
God put me in the plans or not
I'm trippin' this drink got me sayin' a lot
But I know that God put you in front of me

So how the hell could you front on me?
There's a thousand you's, there's only one of me
I'm trippin', I'm caught up in the moment right?
This is Louis Vuitton Don night
So we gonna do everything that Kan like
Heard they'd do anything for a Klondike
Well I'd do anything for a blonde-dike
And she'll do anything for the limelight
And we'll do anything when the time's right
Ugh, baby, you're makin' it (harder, better, faster, stronger)

[Chorus:]

I need you right now
I need you right now

You know how long I've been on you?
Since Prince was on Apollonia
Since oj had Isotoners
Don't act like I never told you [x6]
Baby, you're making it (harder, better, faster, stronger)

[Chorus:]

I need you right now [x4]

You know how long I've been on you?
Since Prince was on Apollonia
Since oj had Isotoners
Don't act like I never told you
Never told you [x4]

Never over [x8]

"Stronger" is the second single from Kanye West's album Graduation. The single was first released digitally on July 31, 2007. Stronger features a prominent sample from the song Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger by the French house music duo Daft Punk, who received songwriter credits (along with original "Cola Bottle Baby" songwriter Edwin Birdsong, who Daft Punk themselves sampled) and had their costumes appear in the music video, which was co-directed by West and Hype Williams. According to an interview with Def Jam president (at the time) Jay-Z, West obsessed over the production and mixing of the track, having it mixed 75 times, as he could not seem to get the kick drum to sound precisely the way that he wanted it to, amongst other issues. West reportedly recorded over fifty versions of the track. The song topped the charts in the United States and was eventually certified Diamond (10x platinum) by the RIAA in 2021. The song won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 50th Grammy Awards on February 10, 2008, where West performed the song with Daft Punk as a surprise guest in what became their first televised live performance in their career. The song has since been included on Rolling Stone magazine's '500 Greatest Albums of All Time' list (at #500). The track has also since been credited with not only encouraging other hip-hop artists to incorporate house and electronica elements into their music, but also with playing a part in the revival of disco and electro-infused music in the late 2000s. The song also brought Daft Punk to prominence in the United States; Rolling Stone credited it with "the beginning of the group's path to mainstream success."
