JAY-Z Hangs Out In Kingston, Jamaica With Damian Marley in ‘Bam’ Video [WATCH]
JAY-Z delivered another great visual from 4:44 — this time for his dancehall-inflicted banger “Bam.” The video was shot on the streets of Kingston, Jamaica as Hov visits the legendary Tuff Gong Studios to record the song with Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.
“The prophets in the beginning were musicians. They were poets, writers,” said JAY-Z in the beginning of the visual, which can only be seen on Tidal. “That’s what we’ve been tasked with in this life. We’re whistles. The wind goes through us, we make noise.”
The video is intercut with scenes of both JAY and Damian exploring the Kingston neighborhoods and in the studio together recording the track, which samples Sister Nancy’s classic reggae song, “Bam Bam.”
In other news, JAY-Z’s 4:44 album is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Also, the Roc Nation honcho will embark on a North American tour in the fall in support of the album. The trek will kick off in Anaheim, Calif., on Oct. 27.
