New Jay-Z – “History”

After exhausting all the talk about the hope and the optimism for our country’s future and the realization of its highest ideals on Tuesday night, a blogger-friend and I got down to the campaign result’s most immediate and significant impact: How many emails did we expect the next day from bands publicizing their very special “Obama Won” songs? Our guesses to the amount (and listenability) of said commemorative tracks were pretty dead on, although Jay-Z’s hadn’t rolled in yet. The track’s got J rapping and indirectly repping Obama’s rise, finding the victory in history and the musical counterpart to his Obama’s running so we all can fly speech.

America.
