Just Blaze speaks of a stylistically similar song to "Song Cry" which he's been trying to get Jay Z to include on an album for some time.
Jay Z and Just Blaze are a pretty unstoppable team. Blaze is responsible for both "U Don't Know" and "Interlude," two of Jay's most punishing bangers, but also supplied the sweet, soul-sampling beat for "Song Cry". His absence from Magna Carta Holy Grail did not go unnoticed, and while many were hoping for another monstrous track from the duo, Blaze has revealed that there were plans to include another weeper on the album.
“Me and Jay did a song, this might have been—I think it was from The Black Album, maybe. It was called ‘Hello Young Lady’ and it was kind of like a ‘Song Cry’ part two,” said the producer. “And the reason we didn’t put it out was because subject matter-wise it was so close to [‘Song Cry’]. Basically, it was like how ‘Song Cry’ was three verses, these were the next three verses of that same song. But it was so close it was just like ‘Ah, we already did this. We don’t really need to do it again.’”
While the song was brought up once again during the MCHG sessions, it was ultimately axed, though Blaze is confident that it will be released someday.
“We did revisit that idea like right when he first started figuring out what he wanted to do with Magna Carta and he came to see me,” he said. “We actually did bring that record up. And it was a contender for a day or two…One day I’mma get him to put it out.”
