New Jay-Z (Feat. Pharrell) – “I Know”

Director Philip Andelman gives American Gangster’s most smoothed out nighttime track a fittingly low-lighted, evening air — “four separate and unrelated stories, four unique trips taken on by four girls in one night in New York City,” is the pitch — but needing to adjust the screen contrast just to see what’s going on can’t be a good thing. The vibe’s mostly right for the Neptunes’ midnight-in-the-city beat, and we’re told that Zoe Kravitz is one of the four ladies (and we think that’s her, pictured), but maybe someone with more dilated pupils can confirm that and if anything else cool happens.

That comes via thesuckerfree blog. American Gangster is out via Island Def Jam/Roc-A-Fella.
