Young Forever” is the fifth overall single by  Jay-Z  from his studio album The Blueprint 3. It features guest vocals from Mr Hudson, who is well known for his collaboration with Kanye West on “Supernova.” 

Apparently we can expect another between Jay-Z and Mr. Hudson at the end of the month with the single ”Playing with Fire.” Meanwhile check out the video for “Forever Young.”

“Forever Young” was originally sung by the band Alphaville. Their version of “Forever Young” came back into popularity a couple of years ago because it was featured in Napoleon Dynamite.

Do you think Jay-Z’s & Mr. Hudson’s version is better?

Here are the lyrics with Jay-Z’s ad libs included.

[Mr. Hudson]
Let’s dance in style,
Let’s dance for a while,
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst,
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?
Let us die young or let us live forever,
We don’t have the power but we never say never,
Sitting in a sandpit,
Life is a short trip,
The music’s for the sad man,

[chorus]
Forever young,
I wanna be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever and ever
Forever young I wanna be
Forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, forever

[Jay-Z Ad Lib]
May the best of your todays, be the worst of your tomorrows, but we aint even thinking that far, you naw mean?

[Jay-Z]
So we live a life like a video
When the sun is always out and you never get old
and the champagne’s always cold
and the music is always good
and the pretty girls just happen to stop by in the hood
and they hop their pretty ass up on the hood of dat pretty ass car
without a wrinkle in today
cuz there is no tomorrow
just some picture perfect day
to last a whole lifetime
and it never ends
cos all we have to do is hit rewind
lyrics courtesy of killerhiphop.com
so lets just stay in the moment, smoke some weed,
drink some wine,
reminisce talk some sh-t forever young is in your mind
leave a mark that can’t erase neither space nor time
so when the director yells cut,
I’ll be fine,
I’m forever young…

[chorus]

[Jay-Z]
Fear not when, fear not why,
fear not much while were alive,
life is for living not living up tight,
see ya somewhere up in the sky,
fear not die, i’ll be alive for a million years, bye bye,
so not for legends, I’m forever young
my name shall survive
through the darkest blocks, over kitchen stoves,
over Pyrex pots, my name shall be passed down to generations while debating up in barber shops,
young slung, hung here,
shorty, the n-gga from here
with a little ambition just what we can become here,
lyrics courtesy of killerhiphop.com
and as the father passed his story down to his sons ears,
younger kid, younger every year, yeah
so if you love me baby this is how you let me know.
don’t ever let me go, thats how you let me know, baby,

[chorus]

[Jay-Z]
Slamming Bentley doors,
hopping out of Porsche’s,
popping up on Forbes lists,
Gorgeous,
hold up,
n-ggas thought i lost it,
they be talking bullsh-t
i be talking more sh-t
they nauseous,
hold up,
I”ll be here forever
you know, i’m on my four sh-t,
and I ain’t wit foreclosure, I will never forfeit,
less than four bars,
Guru bring the chorus in,
did you get the picture yet,
I’m painting you a portrait of young…

[Chorus]
[End]
