Kanye West, Jay-Z Add Beyoncé, Bruno Mars to ‘Lift Off’
West and Jay-Z keep ‘Watch The Throne’ alive.
Who says pop and hip-hop can’t intertwine? Kanye West and Jay-Z have recruited Beyoncé and Bruno Mars for their new single “Lift Off.”
The song is from Kanye and Jay’s forthcoming duet album “Watch The Throne,” which was originally reported to hit shelves in March. The project’s first Lex Luger-produced single “H.A.M.” dropped a few month ago to mixed reactions, still the producer behind “Lift Off” boasts high hopes.
“When rappers hear Watch the Throne they gonn’ be pissed off. #andproducerstoo,” tweeted Jeff Bhasker, who crafted “Lift Off” alongside West.
No official release date for the latest “Watch The Throne” was released at press time.
After rumors that Jay-Z, and his wife R&B star Beyonce, were going to be performing at the upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday (April 29th), representatives for Beyonce have now set the record straight.
“The ceremony is not on her schedule and she has a shoot in New York on Saturday,” a representative for Beyonce said.
The rumors started after the Brittish newspaper “Daily Star” reported that “William and Kate are massive fans of Beyonce and Jay-Z.” Rumors continued that the royal couple had asked Jay-Z and Beyonce to perform their “Crazy In Love" hit single during the reception. The rumors were strengthened when the musical couple were staying in a fancy Paris hotel but it’s now known they are in Europe to promote Beyonce's “Girls Who Run The World" single.
I am a huge fan of your blog. I just wanted to share a project I just completed. I designed a book using Beyonce (and Destiny’s Child) lyrics for my Typography class here at Carnegie Mellon. It really isn’t about Beyonce but more about how her lyrics relate to the strong women in my family. Here is the link to the project, let me know if this is interesting to you.
Thanks for submitting Victor. I looked through the pics and I like how you incorporated the lyrics in your project. Good choice on who’s lyrics to use by the way :) Make sure to credit Beyonce and Destiny’s Child in your book, if you haven’t yet of course :)
