The Songwriters: Ant Clemons

It takes a special performer to steal the show from Kanye West—and to do it with a chorus that includes the words “medulla oblongata” is even more surprising. But that’s what Ant Clemons did on “All Mine,” the 2018 collaboration with West that turned the New Jersey-born singer and songwriter into a sought-after creative partner and breakout artist in his own right. Beyoncé, Ty Dolla $ign, and Camila Cabello have all come to Clemons asking for generous servings of his flair, his hooks, and—sometimes—his breathy falsetto.
