With the digital release of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s album Watch the Throne today (Best Buy hardcopy release Friday, August 12th) comes a new record “Lift Off” featuring Beyoncé. There have been a lot of bad reviews of this song due to what some consider a weak comparison with the rest of the album…but I love it! (and not just because it features my homegirl Bey).
The song is eclectically different yet exactly what you would expect from a collaboration this big. Bey sings:
“We gonna take it to the moon, take it to the stars / how many people you know can take it this far”
Seriously though how many people do you know to have the type of effect on anything the way these three artists have on music and entertainment as a whole?
Watch the Throne is getting great reviews particularly on the fact that there was no leak before it’s release date which is almost impossible in the music industry today…shows you the kind of power Jay and Kanye have over this biz…hmm.
What are your thoughts on the record and the entire album?
