Jay-Z releases "(Always Be My) Sunshine" single

"(Always Be My) Sunshine" is the second single from rapper Jay-Z's second album In My Lifetime, Vol.

1. It features vocals from Foxy Brown and Babyface as well as production from Daven "Prestige" Vanderpool. Vanderpool samples Alexander O'Neal's "Sunshine", Kraftwerk's "Man Machine" and the Fearless Four's "Rockin' It" for the track's beat. In addition, George Fonenette plays keyboards on this song. The song's lyrics helped indicate Jay-Z's change from his Mafioso rap style to a more commercial "shiny suit" style. Some considers Jay-Z a sellout for releasing pop-oriented love songs like this, but Steve Juon of RapReviews.com supports the song claiming that it is a less gangsta version of The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Me & My Bitch", a well-received track.
