And for our final double elimination you chose to get rid of...

22. Kanye West & Jay-Z - Otis (9 votes, 25.00%)

With the highest percentage of all of the eliminated songs so far, it is time to say goodbye to 'Otis'. The song was released as the 2nd single from the joint Jay-Z album 'Watch The Throne' in July 2011. It heavily samples the famous 'Try A Little Tenderness' by the late great Otis Redding and became critically acclaimed, even winning a Grammy for Best Rap Performance. It charted decently worldwide, including a #28 peak on the UK Singles Chart and a peak of #12 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Personally, really not surprised at its position as some people have been gunning for it for a good few rounds now. Seems placed about right to me too.



21. Kanye West feat. T-Pain - Good Life (4 votes, 11.11%)

Unfortunately with the last round being such a one horse race with all the 'Otis' votes it means that 'Good Life' has had to bow out on only 4 votes. These double eliminations were always going to be ruthless. The song was released as the second single from Kanye's 3rd album 'Graduation', and acts as the first from that album to fall in this poll. Much like 'Otis' above, the song contains a sample, this time of Michael Jackson's 'P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing). The song also picked up a Grammy, this time for Best Rap Song in 2008. It peaked at #23 on the UK Singles Chart but fared better across the pond, peaking at #7 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Again, like 'Otis', I enjoy it but seeing as the standard is so high I think it is positioned about right and was going to go soon anyway.



21. Good Life (4 votes, 11.11%)
22. Otis (9 votes, 25.00%)
23. Only One (7 votes, 17.95%)
24. FourFiveSeconds (8 votes, 20.51%)
=26. Heard 'Em Say (6 votes, 15.79%)
=26. Lift Off (6 votes, 15.79%)
27. Why I Love You (5 votes, 14.71%)
28. Slow Jamz (6 votes, 17.65%)
=30. Bound 2 (6 votes, 16.67%)
=30. H•A•M (6 votes, 16.67%)

So as we move onto single eliminations from here on in, which tracks do you think have outstayed their welcome? What should go next? Should 'Otis' and 'Good Life' have gone so early? Have your say and vote below!

Think there is going to be a lot of vote splitting from now on in, if we go on the last round.

For me, it is 'Mercy' from now on in. I really really like it and it is an anthem in a club but don't see it as being on the same level as the rest. It says a lot when the whole top 20 are at least 8/10 songs.

Huge shame Good Life is out so early one of his best early tracks! Please to see Otis out though.

Just NIP left to boot & it's all good songs from there.

Absolutely NO idea. What a flawless top 20/discography. I *think* it's 'Mercy' for me too just glancing at the list, but i am not 100% sure so going to leave it for a short while and see if there's a more obvious choice when i relisten through them all.

GAH

Clique, the production's vaguely interesting but the chorus is horribly monotone and the whole thing just doesn't go anywhere.

You really are. It's so good and possibly closing to my top 10 Kanye singles in this, I think.

Never really realised that 'Good Life' was particularly well thought of. Sure, its good and catchy, but its hardly sonically interesting - apart from being feel good, it is a pretty basic song compared to the rest of the top 20 here imo.

Yep 'All Day' is firmly in my top 10 too. 'Touch the Sky' again for me – I love it but just not as much as all the others.
Such an incredible discography.

Tough now, but never been a massive fan of Heartless.

The votes seem spread out right now, shows how strong the list is tbh. N*ggas in Paris shouldn't be leaving yet (although it won't win). That's going down as a 2010's classic.

Definitely getting tough now. Gotta go with Homecoming though, feels among the least essential.

Crying at the thought of 'Niggas In Paris' possibly leaving us already cry.gif

It is a modern day classic and one of the biggest club anthems of the last decade so far people. Definitely in my top 5 on here. #SaveNIP

That is 100% the reason for me. And the Will Ferrell sample.
