Priorities seem to be a bit off-kilter for Jay Electronica. Having jumped across the Atlantic Ocean to London, then being entangled in the marital affairs of a British heiress — it has been a wonder if Jay is in fact still making music?
We can lay that thought to rest, given that Jay recently tweeted this new track “Better in Tune With the Infinite,” featuring vocals from LaTonya Givens. Lifting Japanese composer Kyuichi Sakamoto‘s “Bibo No Aozora” for the music (most notably used by Trey Songz‘s on his “Can’t Be Friends“), an excerpt from Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, and a scene from The Wizard of Oz, Jay’s one verse rap touches on a multitude of subjects that are all somehow interrelated. His final line of “staring out the window is for love songs and house flies” simply adds to its melancholy. Feeling the abstractism.
Ending question: Can you hurry up with the album, Jay?!
