Jay-Z And Kanye West Release Otis, New Single From Watch The Throne

Ye and Jigga have given us another quick peek at what to expect from their collaboration album Watch The Throne. Yes, that’s right, we have another single from Jay-Z/Kanye West, this one is aptly titled Otis and samples Otis Redding’s Try a Little Tenderness. West takes the producing ropes on the track as the two rap moguls trade verses on top of Yeezy’s soulful beat.

The song was actually leaked not too long ago so you may have heard it but this is a cleaner sounding version and it’s also official. It’s a great song, just as good as H.A.M., which was the last track we heard from the album. The Otis Redding sample is a bit of an inspired choice and it works out pretty well.

Watch the Throne will be released digitally on August 1st, with the physical release to follow on August 5th.

Check out the track below. If the video goes down, let us know in the comments.
