Runaway - Kanye West


Piano sheet music transcription. "Runaway" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Kanye West, released as the second single from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). It features Pusha T, who is signed to West's label GOOD Music. The production was handled by West, alongside co-producers Emile, Jeff Bhasker, and Mike Dean. The composition features repetitive piano riffs, intricate samples and a production style with several similarities to West's album 808s & Heartbreak (2008). Described as a deeply personal song in nature, it expresses West's thoughts on his failed relationships, and his acceptance of the media's perception of him. Lyrically the song explores criticism aimed at West in the past and serves as a "toast to the douchebags." "Runaway" was used in the trailer for The Hangover Part III. The song was featured in a scene in The Night Before. A modified piano rendition by Ramin Djawadi, was used in a trailer for season 2 of Westworld, which premiered during Super Bowl LII.
