The track samples ‘In The Space’ by Janko Nilovic and Dave Sucky.

Lyrically, ‘D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune)’ sees Jay-Z call himself the “Only rapper to rewrite history without a pen”, before chastising modern technology, including iTunes and mobile phones.

“This is anti-Auto-Tune/Death of the ringtone/This ain’t for iTunes/This ain’t for singalongs,” he raps.

‘The Blueprint 3’, produced by Kanye West, is set for release on September 11 in the US.
