Major facepalm moment coming your way: a number of Kanye West fans don’t know who Paul McCartney is.

Paul McCartney as in one of the most famous musicians in the world and one of the most successful songwriters on the planet.

Paul McCartney as in, I don’t know, that guy from THE BEATLES.

After the rapper revealed his duet with the musical legend, new single ‘Only One’ (an ode to his late mother, Donda), fans took to Twitter to ask who this mysterious Paul McCartney character was.

One wrote:” Who is Paul McCartney? He boutta to blow up thanks to Kanye (sic)”

Another naive Twitterer wrote: “Kanye has a great ear for talent. This Paul McCartney guy gonna be huge (sic).”

What is life...
