Jay-Z & Kanye West – Otis (Official Music Video)

Here we have the highly anticipated release for the first music video, Otis, off the Watch The Throne collaboration album between Jay-Z and Kanye West. It’s a fitting title, particularly because it’s a tribute to Otis Redding, and the song they’re sampling is Try A Little Tenderness. The video is directed by Spike Jonze, the genius who also helmed The Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs and Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Y Control. I like this video because we finally get to see Jay and ‘Ye laugh and have some fun, rather than being ever so serious (in nearly every other video they’ve ever been in – Run This Town, anyone?). And the laughing at the end was hysterical. Love that part of the song.
