Jay Z Joins X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons’ ‘Jungle (Remix)’
With the success around the Beats by Dre’s ‘The Game Before the Game’ World Cup campaign and its video, the headphones company released a new version of the X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons song ‘Jungle,’ which features the vocal stylings of Jay Z.
Keeping with the steady ‘We Will Rock You’-like rhythm, the remix version of the song has a harder rock sound to it, especially with Hov’s strong conviction on the lyrics. “On Training Day I go too hard / Ask Antoine Fuqua / I am Godzilla of these favelas / New God flow,” he delivers.
Unlike the initial cut, this song and video only runs a minute and nine seconds — building up the excitement and anticipation for the big game.
Beats by Dre released the original version of the song a week before (June 5) the FIFA World Cup’s opening match on June 12. The visual was a five-minute film featuring some of the world’s best soccer players including Brazilian foward Neymar.
