Young Guru, Jay-Z’s longtime engineer, previewed the track on Wednesday (March 14), while DJing at Empire Auto Space in Austin, Texas during a SXSW party.
Along with new lyrics from Lamar, Jay hits the second verse with yet another nod to his wife Beyoncé.
“Up in the clouds, me and my spouse/ Rumors on the ground getting too loud please turn them s**** down/ Can’t hear myself think/ Turbulance, s*** I almost spilled my drink”
It is the second feature verse this year from Jay-Z, including his turn on Justin Timberlake‘s comeback track, “Suit & Tie.”
On “Suit And Tie,” Jay talks about his marriage and his relationship with his in-laws.
“Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you/ Tell your father we go farther as a couple/ They ain’t lose a daughter, they got a son”
UPDATE: Check out the official remix, here.
While Jay-Z gives his latest shout to Beyoncé, she offered a nod to their union with the title of her forthcoming tour, The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, which kicks off April 16 in Belgrade, Serbia.
Before Jay remixed Kendrick’s “B**** Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Lady Gaga appeared on a version of the song that did not make the album.
