Just Blaze & Baauer ft. Jay Z—Higher

There has been a lot of anticipation building up to the release of “Higher” by Just Blaze & Baauer—and it’s accompanying visuals—ever since the teaser was first released last week. Needless to say, not only did the release of this new track by the veteran Hip-Hop producer Just Blaze and Baauer—who gained immediate fame with his internet sensation “Harlem Shake”—meet expectations, it smashed them. The beat is unique and energizing in its own right, but together with the impressive visuals directed by Nabil allow it to reach levels of awesomeness yet to be seen or heard. I don’t know if it’s accurate or honest to say that Jay Z is featured on this track since his voice was only sampled then repeated throughout various parts of the song, but hey, his name is on the title so there you go—good work Jay Z.
