NEW YORK — Jay-Z fans have both new and old music to enjoy this week. “Brooklyn (Go Hard),” the rapper’s collaboration with Santogold from the “Notorious” soundtrack, leaked online Monday, and nine vintage Jay-Z videos went up Tuesday for mobile download on Thumbplay.com.
“Brooklyn (Go Hard),” produced by Kanye West, is the first single from “Notorious,” due Jan. 13 from Bad Boy. According to a spokesperson for Jay-Z, it’s unclear whether he will shoot a video for the track.
The film, due three days after the soundtrack, chronicles the life and death of rapper Notorious B.I.G., played by newcomer Jamal “Gravy” Woolard. Angela Bassett stars as the rapper’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and Derek Luke plays Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Meanwhile, the Thumbplay deal includes videos for “Blue Magic,” “Dirt Off Your Shoulder,” “Do It Again (Put Ya Hands Up),” “Excuse Me Miss,” “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me),” “I Know,” “Izzo (H.O.V.A.),” “Money, Cash, H**s” and “Roc Boys (And the Winner Is).”
A new Jay-Z studio album is expected early next year.
