Watch Jay-Z and Kanye West’s new video for ‘Niggas In Paris’

Will Ferrell makes a short cameo in the new 'Watch The Throne' promo

Jay-Z and Kanye West have debuted the video for ‘Niggas In Paris’, their latest single from their collaboration album ‘Watch The Throne’.

The video, which debuted online this afternoon (February 9), is largely compromised from footage filmed at the duo’s recent gig at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, with shots of the pair performing mixed with crowd footage.

The promo also includes a clip from the comedy Blades Of Glory with Will Ferrell making a brief appearance on screen.


The track is the sixth to be released from ‘Watch The Throne’ and the second to be accompanied by a music video after the release of ‘Otis’ last year.

It was reported earlier today that Kanye West was in Shoreditch, London to attend the video premiere, with representatives for the hip-hop star have distributed an image of a street map of the east London location and have hinted that the unspecified event will start at 5pm. However, whilst the video was shown, West did not show up.

Jay-Z has previously hinted that the second release from his and West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ project will be released this year.

He said of he and West’s future plans: “We – I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode – we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year… We’ve really found our zone.”
