New Music: Jay-Z “Run This Town”
It’s about time. I literally sat in my car listening to Hot97 (which is something I haven’t done since, what, ’98?) waiting for this song to drop. Now I have it.
“Run This Town” has that guitar licky ominous “we will push through” sound, which is something that Jay and Ye seem to love doing when they get in the studio together (ie “Never Let Me Down”). Kanye is actually rapping and Rihanna sounds nice Auto-Tune free. You can tell she seems to be singing from her heart like “Eff You Chris Brown!” And Jay, well, he’s Jay. Let’s be honest here.
