Jay-Z and Kanye West are set to release the next two singles off of their collaboration album Watch the Throne.  What will be the third and fourth singles officially released will hit radio on Tuesday September 13th

            The first of the two singles is titled, “N***** in Paris” and is being released to Urban radio.  The song boasts production credits by Hit-Boy, who produced the Lil’ Wayne f/ Eminem hit “Drop The World”, as well as Kanye West himself.  According to a recent interview with Rap Up.com, Hit-Boy says that we can also expect a video for the song to be on the way as well.

            The second single is called, “Why I Love You” and it features the vocals of the British Pop artist Mr. Hudson.  Mr. Hudson has been featured in the past on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 single “Young Forever” as well as on Kanye’s  808’s & Heartbreak hit “Paranoid”.  The song features production by famed hip hop producer Mike Dean and it samples the song, “I Love You So” by the French house music group Cassius. 

            While “N***** in Paris” differs only slightly lyrical content wise from their first two singles “H-A-M” and “Otis”, “Why I Love You” speaks to a much more interesting lyrical content.  The lyrics speak to a certain level of feeling paranoid about their larger than life personas.  Jay-Z directly speaks about the issues he has had with relationships he has had with other artists in the past.  In other words, it seems that Jay-Z is speaking in the song to the issues he has had with former Roc-A-Fella Records artists such as Beanie Sigel. 

            Be sure to check out both “N***** in Paris” and “Why I Love You” featuring Mr. Hudson when they hit the radio airwaves September 13th.
