Summary: A great daft punk song with some lame Jay-Z verses.

About Artist: Daft Punk, Jay-Z, Kanye West. I’m not even gonna say anymore except, remember when Kanye & Daft Punk did that Stronger song? that was cray.

About Song: This is just some leak I don’t know what project it may be on.

Favorite Part:
The ‘computerized’ part is awesome. I love remixing this song on my turntables. Jay-Z literally adds nothing good to this song imo.

Summary: Happy New Year! Here’s to 2014 A Year of Love!
About Artist: Beyonce just keeps getting better. How does she do it? I have no idea.
About Song: This song is off of Beyonce ‘surprise’ album that she just dropped. Already this songs is dominating the radio. Jay-Z pretty much sucks on this song but the hook and the baseline are just sooo good.

Favorite Part:
I like the chorus, just Beyonce’s growly voice and the super sick base line on this track.

Reminds me of the raw fcking power of just being in love.

JayZ-OpenLetter
[THIS MP3 HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO A COMPLAINT BY THE IFPI]
Summary: ¡Viva la Revolución!

About Song:  Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce recently went to Havana Cuba for their anniversary sparking a mini political media shitstorm from Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Pitbull, and White House spokesman Jay Carney. This song is a response to the criticism Jay-Z received for his trip.
Favorite Part:

I just like that Jay-Z is flexing his political muscle a little bit and making a song that’s relevant.

Justin Timberlake – Suite & Tie (ft. Jay-Z)

DOWNLOAD MP3 JustinTimberlake-SuitTieftJayZ.mp3
Summary: Basically a Pop song (sorry for all the recent pop) but I like style of it, Justin’s voice doesn’t hurt either. The video really adds a lot and in fact I didn’t really like the song at all until I saw the video
About Artist:  Justin Timberlake, ever heard of him? Formerly NSYNC, currently one of the sexiest men alive. Jay-Z reigning king of hip hop. And this song was produced by longtime veteran, heavy hitter, and music legend Timbaland. Each artist has their own dynasty of music so expectations for this song were pretty high.
About Song: It seems like this song will be a single off of Justin Timberlake’s hiiiighly anticipated upcoming album 20/20. The song isn’t extremely excited but the video adds a lot and you can feel some of Timbalands style on the beat.
Favorite Part: I just love hearing Justin Timberlake sing
“Let me show a few things”

“…Ass tight demin and some dunks.
I show how to do this young.
No papers, catch vapors
Gettin high, out in Vegas

Tell your mother that I love heExplainr cause I love you
Tell your father we go farther as a couple
They ain’t lose a daughter, got a son
I show you how to do this, hun!”
(3:49)

I also found it very interesting how the track switched up completely for Jay-Z verse and how much darker the sound and lyrically his part of the song was compared to  most of the song where Justin Timberlake’s is singing carefree.

Jay-Z and Kanye West – Otis

Summary:Watch the Throne (out August 1st)
About Artist: Jay-Z and Kanye West, what else is there to say. These are two of the current if not all time greats. They are coming out with a collaboration album Watch the Throne on August for and of course it will be much anticipated.
About Song: This song will appear on Watch the Throne and I believe is the albums first single (not sure if H.A.M counted as single or not). The song, produced by Kanye West, sample Otis Redding’s Try a little Tenderness.
Favorite Part:
The sample is sooo soulful and awesome but as far a lines I like…
“Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses
Sophisticated ignorance, write my curses in cursive
I get it custom, you a customer
You ain’t ‘customed to going through Customs” (1:47)
I also love Jay-Z verse right after that and best part it there is NO HOOK.
