Otis Redding’s ‘Tenderness’ Fan Club: Kanye, Jay-Z, Shrek And More

Watch the Throne track 'Otis' samples the oft-covered song originally recorded in 1932.

Before Jay-Z and Kanye West turned it into a playground for their lyrical warfare, Otis Redding’s 1966 version of “Try a Little Tenderness” was a classic in its own right. Yes, a sampling of the tune appears on “Otis,” a track off the highly anticipated Watch the Throne LP, but the song has penetrated pop culture throughout the years, and this latest incarnation of the soulful track proves that the love affair is still strong.
