If you needed any further proof that the Kanye West/Jay-Z collabo Watch the Throne is going to be nothing short of a masterpiece, I present to you evidence marked “Otis”. The royal duo cut up over a cut up sample of Otis Redding’s 1966 classic, “Try a Little Tenderness”, that causes the head nod muscles to automatically kick in.
Watch the Throne is due to drop digitally August 1st and in CD form on August 5th. Visit watchthethrone.com to get your pre-orders in.
Oh, and the track art, as well as the pure gold album cover, is designed by Riccardo Tisci the Creative Director of Givenchy. Top talent is sprayed all over this project.
