Today marks the day that the new album of Jay-Z's is available to purchase digitally. "Magna Carta Holy Grail"'s hard copy will be made available Tuesday. Not to mention the album has already been certified platinum since Samsung purchased one million copies a few weeks ago to deliver to owners of their smartphones.
No soon after the album dropped at midnight, tracks surfaced on the inter-web and this Beyonce assisted song was one of them. It's the sequel and follow-up to their smash hit "'03 Bonnie & Clyde". 10 years later, the new song is called "Part II (On the Run)" and it's very different from the previous.
It's very mellow and melodic. It's laced with syncs and B sings in her lower register throughout the song. J delivers his bars so fluently and it meshes to well with the production. There's no doubt that the album will be on top of the charts and I'm sure this 5 minutes track will get the single treatment. Listen below.
Such greatness! Jay-Zs's rap evolves year after year and it just goes so well with the times! I can't wait to listen to the album in full. What do you think about the track? Beyonce is laced all over it so clearly, you can see why I love it.
