a time when you’ve got to go and challenge yourself with other areas,
you know what I’m saying? Take myself out of my comfort zone. Take the

JAY-Z was claimed to have said that he would consider having special

song is when Beyoncé sings the bridge. So JAY-Z will probably have
that song as well. JAY-Z states that the albulm will probably be 90% him
