Kanye West and Jay-Z's 'Otis' Approved by Otis Redding's Daughter


Karla Redding-Andrews says having Kanye and Jigga sampling Otis' 'Try a Little Tenderness' is an honor.

Kanye West and Jay-Z's take on Otis Redding's classic "Try a Little Tenderness" has got a blessing from the late singer's daughter Karla Redding-Andrews. "To have two current, legendary artists use the legendary music of Otis Redding-we were quite honored," she told Billoard recently.

"We first heard about the song in early July, end of June," she recalled. "Concord Music Group has the masters and Bill Belmont and Michele Smith from Concord brought it to us. There was a back and forth about whether the name of the song would be 'Otis' or 'Otis Redding'. And we just wanted to make sure lyrics and references in the song worked with the legacy of my father."

"Otis" is recorded for Kanye and Jigga's upcoming duet album "Watch the Throne" which is due in the United States on August 2. Talking about how it ended up crediting Otis as a featured guest, Karla gushed, "The estate was offered the option to have 'Otis' receive a 'featuring Otis Redding' credit, and agreed."
