Celebs Tweet on Jay-Z and Kanye’s “Otis”


Jay Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne stands as one of the most anticipated albums of the summer. Last night they released a song from the album set to release on Aug. 2 called “Otis.” The song samples Otis Redding’s 1966 “Try a Little Tenderness.” As per usual, Twitter users hopped on the new song, shared links and their thoughts. –Aliya Faust
