“Watch the Throne” watch: Kanye West and Jay-Z drop “Otis” video

The dynamic duo dropped their video for "Otis" last night. Has Jay ever looked happier on film? The Spike Jonze-directed clip features that Beastie Boys-ish slow motion that lends itself to goodtimes. That, and Kanye and Hov are doing donuts at the latter day thunderdome in a fire-belching Maybach chopped-up to look like a latter day Transformer with the latter day "Addicted to Love" girls in the backseat. Is Aziz Ansari the latter day Fonzworth Bentley? And what would Otis Redding make of all this?

Chris Richards is The Washington Post's pop music critic. He has recently written about the best recordings and lyrics of 2015.
