Gym Wednesday: Jay Z & Kanye West ft. Frank Ocean – No Church In The Wild

I’m pretty certain almost everybody will know this track. This is from the iconic album by Jay Z and Kanye West ‘Watch The Throne’. With Frank Ocean on vocals, this is one of many tracks on the album that are simply incredible. This was a much hyped release and the album did not disappoint. You all know who Jay Z and Kanye West are and I’m assuming pretty much all of you know Frank Ocean. He gained a lot of respect outside of his music due to an incident involving the lovable Chris Brown. Mr Brown apparently punched Frank Ocean over a dispute over a parking spot at the recording studio they both use. At an award ceremony not long after, Frank Ocean won the award for ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’ which both of them were nominated for. Frank Ocean received a standing ovation for this achievement, while Chris Brown remained seated like a sore loser. Perfectly captured here.

Not much else to say about the track apart from I object to the line ‘‘what’s a god to a non-believer, who don’t believe in anything?’ That’s nihilism, not atheism. But I forgive you, Mr.Ocean. I hope you like it.
