Beyonce was moved to tears the first time she heard Kanye West’s song Runaway because it showed such a vulnerable side of the confident rapper.
The Irreplaceable hitmaker reveals West played the brutally self-effacing track to her on his birthday last year and she was struck by the honesty of his lyrics and how emotionally-heavy the tune about a broken relationship was.

She tells Complex magazine, “The fact that he’s belting out his pain, his confusion, and his anger, with no pre-written lyrics, was so moving. He’s singing his heart out for five minutes. He is so vulnerable. I love when an artist can be so honest.”
