The Throne

Recently Jay-Z and Kanye West formed a group called The Throne and debuted "Otis," which samples Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness." "Otis" is the new single on their upcoming release Watch the Throne.

"There was a back and forth about whether the name of the song would be 'Otis' or 'Otis Redding,'" Redding's daughter, Karla Redding-Andrews, told "And we just wanted to make sure lyrics and references in the song worked with the legacy of my father. To have two current, legendary artists use the legendary music of Otis Redding-we were quite honored."

The Throne will begin a twenty-four date tour on September 22nd, including two stops in East Rutherford, NJ. Watch The Throne will be released August 8th on iTunes.
