October 21, 2007
By

The second single from the Kanye West Graduation album, “Stronger,” features a sample of French electronic music duo Daft Punk‘s song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” The duo also received songwriter credit.

The video, directed by Hype Williams, was shot in Japan over a nine day period and took three months to complete. Two actors appear in the video wearing Daft Punk’s robotic heads. Also making an appearance, singer and model Cassie.

West contacted famed glasses maker, Alain Mikli, to design the white plastic sunglasses he wears in the video.

The video pays homage to 1988′s Japanese anime film Akira, which critics regard as one of the greatest animated films ever made.

The song can currently be heard for the promo of the 2007 film The Kingdom and is also the introductory song of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Stronger Lyrics

(Work it, make it, do it,
Makes us harder, better, faster, STRONGER!) [played throughout]

(Work it harder make it better,
do it faster makes us stronger,
more than ever, hour after
hour work is never over ) [played throughout]

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 be right now
Cause I can’t get much wronger
Man I been waitin’ all night now
That’s how long I’ve been on ya

I need ya right now
I need ya 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 f**k what they all say, right?
Awesome, the Christian in 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, all my bape shit
Act like you can’t tell who made this
New gospel homey take six, and take this, haters

N-n-now 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 be right now
Cause I can’t get much wronger
Man I been waitin’ all night now
That’s how long I’ve been on ya

I need ya right now
I need (Me likey) ya right now

I don’t know if you got a man or not
If you made plans or not

If God put me in your plans or not
I’m trippin’, this drink got me sayin’ alot
But I know that God put you in front of me
So how the hell could you front on me
There’s a thousand yous
And only one of me
[Stronger lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

I’m trippin’, I’m caught up in the moment right?
‘Cause it’s Louis Vuitton Don night
So we goin’ do everything that Kan like
Heard they’d do anything for a Klondike
Well I’d do anything for a blonde dyke
And she’ll do anything for the limelight
And we’ll do anything when the time’s right
Uh, baby you’re makin’ it
(Harder, better, faster, stronger)oh

Th-that that don’t kill me(oh)
Can only make me stronger(oh)
I need you to hurry up now(oh)
Cause I can’t wait much longer(oh)
I know I got to be right now(oh)
Cause I can’t get much wronger(oh)
Man I been waitin’ all night now
That’s how long I’ve been on ya

I need ya right now
I need ya right now

You know how long I’ve been on ya?
Since prince was on Apollonia
Since OJ had Isotoners

Don’t act like I never told ya
Don’t act like I never told ya
Don’t act like I never told ya
Don’t act like I never told ya
Don’t act like I never told ya

Uh, baby you’re makin’ it

(Harder, better, faster, stronger)

N-n-now 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 be right now
Cause I can’t get much wronger
Man I been waitin’ all night now
That’s how long I’ve been on ya

I need ya right now
I need ya right now
I need ya right now
i need ya right now

Never over
Never over
Never over
Never over
Never over
Never over
Never over
