Poll: What’s Your Favorite Song on ‘Watch the Throne’?

Watch the Throne

Hip-hop heads counted down the minutes to the release of Watch the Throne on Sunday night. If you’re like us, Jay-Z and Kanye West had you up till the early morning listening to their much-anticipated album, while trying not to wake the neighbors.

Now that the heavily-guarded project has made its way onto your iPod, we want to know your favorite song. Is it the Beyoncé-assisted “Lift Off,” either of Frank Ocean’s stellar contributions (“No Church in the Wild” and “Made in America”), or did Kanye and Jay’s sentimental verses to their unborn sons on “New Day” touch you most?

Vote in our poll and share your thoughts below.

    First 3 tracks are pure brilliance whilst the rest of the album is excellence.

    @Drew, i know exactly why. this site is full delusional beyonce fans. i myself deleted lift off from the digital album i bought for real.

    @Drew, I agree. Not a bad song, but it sounds a bit messy. It’s just because it features Beyonce and this site is chock full of biased fans. If they had a track with Rihanna it would be just as high.

    @Summer Time, i actually enjoy lift off because beat is crazy, but i felt like jay z’s part was extra short he only had like 3 bars in the dam song, but kanye killed it with his rapping and autotune singing. one of my other favorite songs is no church in the wild with frank ocean.

    I feel like killin’ a mother fucker, I feel like murderin’ a mother fucker. I feel like burying the motherfucker n’ if you feel sick to your stomach then take 3 shots of Patron! And did I say Patron? I mean three shots of a bullet, go hard like the thump of a beating heart. And maybe then you have what it takes to go fight the devil n’ take his spot. (So hot!) Every time you breath you be blowin’ out sparks!

    @Ian, Naw not the Next Kudi…he ain’t soulful enough (Kudi that is)…Frank Ocean is the male version of Lauryn Hill!
    It just feels right can’t get no tighter with him on the two tracks…No disrespect but Frank Ocean was essential to this album he on his way to Lauryn Hill status if not it’s because he ain’t kill himself tryna get there

    @Kyle, i’m pretty sure all frank does is sing. so how could he be like lauryn?

    Lift Off is one of the weaker songs on the album actually, it’s only leading because Beyonce’s on it. N*ggas In Paris & Who Gon Stop Me are 2 songs you can go ham to, as far as concepts go I like Murder To Excellence & New Day. Why I Love You with Mr. Hudson is epic too. Shoot the whole album is epic save Otis.

    Maybe no one cares about this.but this is my story with this album. im maybe the BIGGEST FAN of kanye west no lie,jay-z it’s one of my favorites too.both are quality artists.today i was in high school(i live in south america) and i was looking forward for the album but what happened? i got home ,listened to the album and damn.i cant believe this happened.the album SUCKS. lyrics are dope but the whole vibe of it it’s techno. fuck that! bring hip hop back kanye. now.. i hate to say it but if they are the kings of hip hop and this was their album then i dont know what to expect from the others. so dissapointed.

    [Reply]

  50. Denise

    The best thing about Lift Off is Beyonce’s vocals/chorus and the production. She didn’t tell Kanye to try to autotune sing and Jay to have a short ass verse. For Pharell to add the NASA countdown. That being said the song still kicks ass. A lot of people liked it from the get go. But I promise you if you play it a few times in a row, you’ll get how great a song it is.

    Idk, the indie hipster in me is in LOVE with That’s My Bitch. What bothers me is how They didn’t credit La Roux and Bon Iver because they’re both on that song, & I LOVE No Church in the Wild but that’s just beat wise, rap wise Niggaz in Paris & I Can’t Stop

    [Reply]

  68. Rich

    I think “No Church in the Wild” is HANDS DOWN the best song in my opinion. No other song puts me in the zone as much as that one does…. That song defines the Watch the Throne album. And I love it even more that it’s the theme song for the new “Safe House” trailer starring Denzel Washington. Im even more hype for the movie just cause of that song being in the trailer. But overall the whole album is amazing.

    Primtike is the best track The album IMO niggas in Paris is kinda cool but ham is complete shit also Otis is great
