Jay Z's Verse "All The Way Up (Remix)" Talks 'Lemonade' & Prince
As if the original version wasn't already hot enough, Fat Joe & Remy Ma pointed to the hills and took it "All the Way Up," adding Jay Z to the remix, where he addressed his marriage woes from Beyonce's Lemonade and showed love to Prince.
Remy Ma made her official come back to the music game by re-linking with one of her Terror Squad label mates, Fat Joe, and doing what they do best -- hitting the studio together and making club bangers. "All the Way Up" featuring French Montana was released back in March and became instant hit on hip radio stations and in the clubs, and continues to soar in the charts according to Hot New Hip Hop. But the remix, recently released exclusively on Tidal (with subscription), may soon trump the original's place on the charts with the help of Jay's witty lyrics.
"You know you made it when the fact your marriage made it is worth millions/ lemonade is a popular drink and it still is/ survival of the littlest/ n*ggas who really up vs n*ggas up in your business," the Brooklyn native raps on the remix.
Referencing 21 Grammy wins and a penthouse-status lifestyle, Jay Z acknowledges how he's still not done reaching, to go all the way up. "The OG said 'Hov, how high is high enough,'" he recited. "I said 'Till we eye and eye with the higher ups.'" He also references the music catalogue of legendary musician Prince, who died in April, according to EUR.
"Prince left his masters where they safe and sound/ We never gonna let the elevator take it down."
The track also features Infared and French Montana who was also featured on the original. The single is the first to be released off the joint project Plata O Plamo, according to Vibe.
