The video to Jay-Z’s new single Run This Town featuring Rhianna and Kanye West premiered on MTV worldwide today.
I just watched the video and the amount of hype being generated by Jay’s label and MTV leading up to the premiere was in my humble opinion – UNNECESSARY!
Run This Town isn’t particularly spectacular and the warrior/Armageddon theme that runs through the video isn’t exactly original.
So why all the fuss, anticipation and countless teasers?
Oh stupid question! It’s because it’s a “mighty Hov” production.
I am old enough to remember when this type of hype for a video release was reserved for the likes of the late great Michael Jackson. But in MJ’s case the hype was always well deserved.
Your thoughts please…
‘Run This Town’ is taken from Jay-Z’s highly anticipated album, ‘Blue Print 3′
People have been going crazy, wetting themselves over this track, like its the best thing since sliced bread!
But as far as I am concerned it’s just OK!!!!!
Others have also said that Kanye kills Jay on his own track.
Kanye’s verse is just OK!!!! It’s nothing to write home about!
Your thoughts please….
