Jay-Z penning songs for a "Annie" remake AND tells Kanye to "put a ring on it". I'm Misty Kingma, and you are watching ClevverMusic. When Jay-Z released hit song "Hard Knock Life" in 1998, he featured a sample of "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the musical 'Annie.' Now, the rapper is writing new songs for the big-screen remake of the Broadway musical 14 years later! The remake stars 11-year-old Willow Smith as "Annie", who's Dad Will Smith is co-producing the film with Jay-Z.
Screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson confirmed the news saying, "In the autumn, we get to go to LA to work with Willow and work on more the script... Jay-Z has already started working on the music." This shouldn't come as too big of a surprise, as Willow is signed to Jay-Z's record label Roc Nation.
But that's not all for Jay-Z today! The print edition of Star Magazine says pal Jay-Z is encouraging 34-year-old Kanye West to "put a ring on it" and marry reality star Kim Kardashian. The Star Mag source claims Kanye told Jay he thinks Kim is a keeper, to which he responded, "Then don't risk losing her -- put a ring on her finger!" Wife Beyoncé, however, reportedly thinks Kanye should wait and see, no doubt because of Kim's high publicized recent divorce from Kris Humphries.
Ironic, since isn't it Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" song that coined the phrase "put a ring on it!"? Kanye has reportedly already designed an engagement ring for Kim using his mother jewels. What do you think? Should Kanye put a ring on it? Let us know what ya think, and doing forget to follow us on Twitter @ClevverMusic. I'll see you next time.
