Wednesday, Feb 8, 2012 10:47AM
Grammy-winning rap duo Jay-Z and Kanye West are reportedly not done promoting their heavy-hitting "N*ggas in Paris" Watch the Throne single with reports claiming an accompanying music video will premiere this week.
According to reports, the "Paris" music video will debut some time tomorrow (February 9).
Jay-Z and Kanye West have revealed when a music video for their latest joint single "N*ggas in Paris" is going to come out for fans' viewing pleasure. The two rappers have planned to premiere the clip in full this coming Thursday, February 9, on VEVO. Accordingly, the upcoming video is going to include footage from their tour stop at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. During the gig which was held last December, the two heavyweight rappers performed the song onstage 10 times in a row. (Ace Showbiz)
Hollywood actor Jon Heder recently reacted to Yeezy sampling his voice off 2007's Blades of Glory movie for the hit record.
"I actually heard about it after the fact," Heder revealed in an interview. "Then I called up my manager like 'What's going on here? Is there some kind of compensation happening?' It was like 'Whatever, the glory of the song is your compensation Jon. Listen to it.' I was like, 'All right.' I am like one of those in Paris. [I'm a part of history?] Yeah, I guess, we have to give it probably a few more years to see its history. ... I'm not quite sure what the connection is but I feel very but I feel very honored. It's a compliment right?" (FUSE)
In November, Heder's Blades of Glory co-star Will Ferrell said he hoped to get sampled on more hip-hop records.
"Kanye reached out to me and I said, 'Of course,' " Ferrell wrote in an e-mail referring to the Blades of Glory sample request. "I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song ... and when I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song." So much so, in fact, that Ferrell said he's hoping to take the Throne collaboration to the next level -- "We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven't gotten it together," he wrote -- and the whole process has opened his eyes to an entirely new career opportunity: Being the go-to sample guy on the hip hop circuit. "I think [something from] 'Step Brothers' would be good [to use in a song]," he wrote. "Or the Woody Allen movie I did, 'Melinda and Melinda.'" (MTV)
Over the fall, Jay and Ye performed "Paris" seven times at a Detroit show.
Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Watch The Throne" tour came to Detroit on Saturday to a massive crowd at the Palace. The duo played 39 songs total, for a two-and-a-half hour set. Many of those were classic solo hits, but the pair also seemed particularly drawn to the song off their joint-effort "Watch The Throne" album. They were so drawn, in fact, that they performed "N*ggas in Paris" seven times. The multiple-encore is apparently not a new phenomenon, at least on this tour. West and Jay-Z played the same song six times at a previous show in Boston. And before that, they played "N*ggas in Paris" five times in Miami. (Huffington Post)
