The 'Watch the Throne' duo are going to premiere the 'Otis' music video directed by Spike Jonze on August 11.
Kanye West and Jay-Z hype up the upcoming premiere of their "Otis" music video by dropping an official trailer. The mega rap duo are seen having a good time and sharing laughs in studio and rooftop. They craft music in studio, chill out in front of Star-Spangled Banner and set off fireworks when the night comes.
There are two versions of the trailer. One which came out via VEVO sees longer footage of Kanye and Jigga when they are in studio and has extra scenes featuring a flock of birds on the sky. The other, courtesy of MTV, is the one which gives an additional look at the rappers hanging out on the rooftop.
The music video comes from direction hands of Spike Jonze. It is going to air on MTV platforms this coming Thursday, August 11 at 8:56 P.M. ET/PT.
The song itself samples Otis Redding's classic "Try a Little Tenderness" and is listed in Kanye and Jigga's first joint album "Watch the Throne".
