Jay-Z Samples Madonna
Rapper Jay-Z unveiled his new record “The Black Album” during a private listening session Wednesday. While Jay didn’t recruit any collaborators for the album, one big name lends his talents behind the boards: Eminem, who produced the track “Moment of Clarity”.
One high profile person who didn’t make the album is Madonna. Madonna’s cooing pillow-talk on “Justify My Love” is sampled on “Justify My Thug” over a sultry, electro-funk track produced by DJ Quik.
Jay explained that Madonna herself was to do the vocals live in the studio, but that he needed to have the album finished by last Friday and she was only available the following Monday. “I’m really late with this already,” he said, “I couldn’t wait. It’s serious.”
