Their single is out online today.
We now have an official taste of one of 2011’s most anticipated projects: the first single from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s collaborative album Watch the Throne has arrived, with “H.A.M” debuting online today.
“H.A.M.” has already been generating a lot of buzz among listeners. According to Simon Vozick-Levinson of Music Mix, “[H.A.M.] is a fierce opening statement that’s unlikely to disappoint fans of either artist. The song begins with a double-time flow from West over fizzy electro burbles and a ghostly vocal sample courtesy of hot producer Lex Lugar. West is in full-on arrogant star mode, spitting slick hostilities laced with so many obscenities that I wonder how this song’s radio edit will sound.”
