I’ll be honest: All I did for this Song of the Week is search “new” in my iTunes; you know, for the new year and all. And it was either this or Gorillaz’s “New Genious (Brother)” so here we go.
“New Day” isn’t the best track off Watch The Throne but it’s notable because Jay Z & Kanye West were basically rapping about having kids back in 2011. As we know now, both have come to pass.
I actually reviewed Watch The Throne when it was originally released (Against protest from the staff) and even though I didn’t give it the classic stamp (The rare coveted nappyafro 5 Stars rating), I honestly now think that the album is a classic.
Anyway, happy new year or whatever.
