So all of you faithful readers know that I am a sucker when it comes to Jigga Jay-Z and Kanyeezy, I have an unhealthy infatuation with their music. The moment I heard that the “Power” remix featuring Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz was out I stopped what I was doing, turned on my international data, and ran up a huge bill downloading the song. I must have listened to this song at least twenty times in the last 10 hours. At first I was not overly pleased, it was too much a of a musical cluster f**k, with way too many layers layered upon each other. However, as time went on and I continued to hit the replay button, I came to appreciate the intricate levels upon levels of musical awesomeness that is this song.
I actually have to say that I am pleased with the way in which Kanye has played the release of this song in all it’s incarnations. The single, the single’s album art, the incredible short yet artistically brilliant music video, and the excellent remix. To be honest, I wouldn’t have expected anything else from Mr. West. Now just hurry up and release the album already!!
Give the “Power” Remix a listen below.
