Jay-Z is among my favorite rappers of all time. And when I heard the sample from "My First Song" (originally by Los Angeles Negros), that really peaked my attention!
I thought the vocal performance exuded power and the lyrics were delivered with a pinch of spiciness by virtue of the sass in the chorus. Overall the track has the kind of laid-back groove which would actually inspire one to get up and waltz - if you can. The passages embellished with trumpets were among certainly my favorite parts, their arrival injected a mood parallel to grandiosity.
"‘Waltz’ is yet another example of the group’s effervescent sound and intertwines an ambitious array of instruments with their tropical charm, showing the world that no mountain is high enough for Sirens of Lesbos to climb."
