  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

  • Jai

    It’s nothing special.

  • cassie

    ı love tihs song especially rihanna and kanye’s part and whe rihanna says addicted

  • Lillianne

    I just can’t look at her without seeing her face smashed in.

  • Alvaro

    It’s hot. Rihanna sounds great. Very good song for her voice.

  • xomajesty

    More JayZ would be nice.
    Rihanna sings all her songs the same.

  • beats

    Jay can do better than this.
    He should have brought in someone with a good voice to guest. RiRi sounds like a girl singing at a high school dance.

  • yelmen

    For a minute there, I thought Rihanna was singing Umbrella.
    She needs to work on her delivery — her songs overlap too much.

  • jaxon

    That was pretty boring for JZ.

  • Wa

    WHATTTTTT THE F*UCK ARE YOU SAYING HATERS !!!!

    THAT SONG IS AWESOME !! Rihanna’s voice is amazing & Jay is the BEST !!

  • jojo

    sound familiar? Babyface & Stevie Wonder – How Come How Long >>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whCKZhPSJYQ

  • halo

    Rihanna needs singing lessons.
    For Jay-Z, this is not amazing.

  • Hatterzzz

    Bro this song is too bomb, what are you guys talking about. Stop hatin’ on Rihanna, Stop hatin’ on Kanye and stop hatin’ on ROC(H) JIGGA THAT NIGGA this song is too sick

  • chica94

    I do like Jayz but it’s not very original. Can hardly hear Kanye on this one.

  • asdf

    NOT hot. Hope J brings it on the rest of the album.

  • aqua

    I consider Jay-Z a genius so I’m a little disappointed.

  • enoughalready

    I’m sorry but this sucks, and not because of Rihanna, poor thing she truly, honestly needs singing lessons. I guess he made her sing live on this one cause my ears are still hurting from her hollaring..

    Regardless of who is on it or what company it represents, it’s not a good rap song at all. Again Rihanna is using someone to sell her self again. If this becomes a hit then the rap game is over… Rihanna destroyed my respect for the music business letting singers like her with no talent sing and now she will kill rap also. She can not continue to do this, her and TI was one thing, Umbrella was a fluke, this here is down right disrespectful!

  • wft

    this track makes me want to run out of town.. rihanna put the mike down and take pictures..you are better at that..

    jayz, this track is ok.. nothing great..

  • http://Justjared style1

    This song is dope love it jay need his thang and rihanna smashed it and kanye ripped it

  • xxbabyxx

    Rihanna seems to do better when others work on her cds. Don’t know why K and J are recruiting her for their works. Gf does not bring it at all.

  • Ilia

    Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, the only thing running was the s**t out of my a**.

  • Next

    Fail. Next time collaborate with your wife, J!!

  • LolaSvelt

    Not too bad, and it’s not really my type of music.

  • just asking

    Rihanna’s hair looks good in that photo.
    New wig?

  • mertz

    lol. heard jayz rap this song on another website…and i thought it was alright. lol. i like the anthem ROCCCC NATION, all black all black everything hollaaaa. lol. it’s nothing new, but i’m sure it’ll get lots of radio play. rihanna sound good on it. lol.

  • tear drop

    the song is stupid and rihanna is all nasally… can’t care though coz that trash aint entering my home

  • mertz

    how do you not hear kanye on the track. he had a whole verse. lol. jeez just finished listening to the whole thing. she kind gets annoying at the ending with her lead vocals and lol at the generic piano strings eneding t end. it’s an alright track…he better not put this pop version on bluepring 3. BLUE PRINT 3 COMING THIS SEPTEMBER. get it.

  • SMGfan

    She sounds great!!!! Her vocals are strong,, and she sings with emotion. I heard this was recorded a day after the court hearing. Love it.

  • nik

    LOVE HEARING RIRI BACK. WELCOME BACK GIRL. WE LOVE YOU. KANYE AND JZ TOO!
    Chris can suck it.

  • Maryse

    this n’ is not by spite which I say that, without joking jay-z could have taken another girl to sing with him because the voice of Rihanna is really horrible to listen to, that keep silent the tympanum shit!!! why this girl became singer, it could have tested another trade, its voice is horrible whore!!! as much noise for nothing!!! if all songs of album are like that, album will rot in the rays of the stores of discs.

  • mertz
  • Freddy

    Whore which serious error of taste, when one with the chance to have a woman who sings as a nightingale as a Canadian journalist in connection with Mrs Carter at the time of his concert said to Canada, one does not make a featuring with a singer of which the voice raye a black board. Who resembles himself ….. gathers

  • black beauty

    the song is a banger

  • RIHANNA..AND HER MEN…

    GUESS WHILE MICHAEL JACKSON WAS GETTING DOWN WITH
    BEYONCE ON THE DANCE FLOOR OF SEAN COMBS WHITE
    PARTY .>>HER HUBBY WAS GETTING TO WORK GETTING STD
    WITH RIHANNA.. THAT IS WHAT THE FIGHT WAS ABOUT IN FEB.

  • Anon

    Whoa! Jay-z! Guess that sends a message to that guy Chris Whatsis! LOL! Bet Diddy isn’t real happy to hear that either. ‘Specially if you’re talin ENWHYCEE.

  • Bri

    *Yanws!
    I guess I expected too much from JayZ..
    It’s just boring…

  • Eve

    There jay – Z lowers his wife there!!! but this voice of Rihanna is what which resembles a crackling, it n’ did not take yet to courses of song this girl, in her place I would stop singing. But It’ is a true torment for the singer with voice to hear that. To the help Celine Dion – Beyonce – Whitney Houston Mariah Carey leave your album quickly. Jay – Z is to us killing our ears.

  • Toni

    Rihanna sounds good…KANYE is the best…JayZ was slacking but he commands respect even if he is whistling…sorry but its the truth

  • barbadosbeauty

    I am so disappointed, he is married to the sickest chick in the game, still he uses this no-talent freak to sing on this track….I love jay-z but he is really getting blindsided by his JUMPOFF

  • mary

    i don’t know.. it’s pretty bland, sorta slow. but not horrible

  • mertz

    yeah i know. i’m not impressed by this song at all…but i’ve heard worse. lol. that’s my excuse especially with the sh8t that is out now. oh well. i hope this isn’t what is on the record and that they can re-remix the song. fix some pitch, fic some parts of the beat. meh.

  • ‘Boss.

    it’s nothing.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston
