Video: Jay-Z x Kanye West x Rihanna – “Run This Town”

August 20, 2009

After three video previews of Hov’s Run This Town, the full version has finally came through via MTV Germany. Though the video has a website embedded into the player, the music video is everything I expected and more. I love seeing Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Rihanna work together.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is one of music’s strongest teams to date.

Update: I installed the OS video version for a better quality.

After releasing the first video preview, and then the second video preview, I am giving you all a third preview of Jay’s Run This Town, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna. This preview is over a minute in total and leaves us wanting to hear Jay-Z’s first verse. Check it out below.

August 17, 2009

The other day, I unleashed a preview of Jay-Z’s latest single, Run This Town, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna. Today, I am giving you all another preview, with a behind the scenes shot of Jay-Z speaking on the video. From the looms of it, this video is going to break barriers, especially in the hip hop realm.

Oh, and by the way, DJ Ted Smooth has released a remixed version to Run This Town. The good news is that it is not a BS release, but it has merit to be a good mix.

Video: Jay-Z x Kanye West x Rihanna “Run This Town” Preview

August 14, 2009

Below, you can check out a preview to Jay-Z’s latest single, Run This Town, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna. Though the video clip below, 30 seconds in all, is just a preview, we are given quite the insight into what to expect from Hov.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Anthony Mandler, who directed the video for Jay’s first single D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune), is the man behind the camera and brings his cinematic touch to the clip. The visuals are unlike anything we’ve come to expect from Jay-Z in the past. From Roc Boys (And the Winner Is …) to I Just Wanna Luv U (Give It 2 Me), Jay has mastered being the life of the party. But Run This Town, with its action sequences and cast of extras is new territory for the MC.

Can we say Mad Max? I am quite excited for the release of this video. Good thing that this video will be unleashed this upcoming Thursday, via MTV. Also, if you still do not have the track, download it here.

Also, you can check out what Hov has to say about his upcoming album, Blueprint 3 after the break.

Jay-Z x Kanye x Rihanna – Run This Town

July 24, 2009

Well, it seems as if the rumor mill has proven itself correct about Jay-Z releasing his official Blueprint 3 single, Run This Town, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna. And the verdict? I am fully impressed. Honestly, I would not expect less from Hov, but this was over the top for me. Having Jay spit two sick verses, Rihanna on the hook and Kanye spitting one of the illest hip hop verses, has left me speechless. Don’t believe, check it out below.

And just as a side, I personally believe this is a better single than anything Jay could have done with Drake. I am quite glad that Ye and RiRi hopped on the song. Pay close attention to what Jay says in this song. After listening to this, I pose the question: How can you deny Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Rihanna being the best at what they do respectively?

Not entirely sure about this, but last I knew, Drake would be the featured guest on Jay-Z’s official radio single entitled, Off That. However, it seems as if Jay will be releasing his first radio single, Run This Town, featuring Kanye West and Rihanna, this upcoming Friday. Did Drake get bumped? Or, are we going to get two new tracks from Hov? Well nonetheless, having ‘Ye and RiRi on a track with Jay will be absolute bonkers. Stay tuned.
