Watch: Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West in 'Run This Town' music video
Full tracklist revealed, with newly uncovered contributions from Alicia Keyes, Young Jeezy
In all-black garb, with headscarves, scrappy weapons and plenty of fire, the hordes seem pissed about an unspecified something, but on the military beat goes, a mad hot white heat beat at that. Perhaps an anti-auto-tune protest?
Nothing is terribly challenging about this jam: Rihanna's lines are pretty simple, the tempo's loping enough for Ye's meandering rhymes and Jay-Z's got plenty of room to just be Jay-Z. It feels a bit long, and Kanye looks madder in the video than his lyrics actually insinuate. Regardless, I love seeing pretty people rock dirt like it was Estee Lauder.
"Run This Town" is the second single from Jay-Z's "Blueprint 3" album, due Sept. 11, produced by West. The first single "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune" was one of our top 25 summer jams,
