“Lost in the World” is a song by hip hop recording artist Kanye West from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). The song features vocals by Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, as well as sampling his 2009 song “Woods“. It also contains portions of “Soul Makossa“ written by Manu Dibango, and samples of “Comment No. 1″, performed by Gil Scott-Heron. It was produced by West and Jeff Bhasker, who wrote the song with Vernon and Malik Jones. “Lost in the World” was initially released on September 29 and was over 6 minutes long, but the version on the album was was split up into two parts, with the outro becoming a new track entitled “Who Will Survive in America”. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who considered it as one of the strongest compositions on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “Lost in the World“ was featured during the closing credits of “Runaway“, a 35 minute music video directed by West set with music from the album. “Lost in the World” was sampled in several freestyles and remixes, including one with West’s fellow GOOD Music label mate Pusha T.
