Background Edit

On "Heaven", Jay-Z questions the meaning of religion and once again shoots down rumors that he is part of the secret organization Illuminati. [ 1 ] He explained the song in a promotional video for Samsung saying,

"No matter what religion you are, accept the other people's idea. Because, have you ever been to heaven? This song is toying with the idea of it being on Heaven or Hell on earth. My idea of being on Heaven is in your daughter’s laughter. Hell could be if your Child missing’s for three minutes; you in three minutes of Hell." [ 2 ] [ 3 ]

The song indulges in religious allegory. and is one of the few songs on Magna Carta Holy Grail that touch upon existential and spiritual themes. [ 4 ] Throughout the song he ponders faith, superstition and free thinking. [ 5 ]

The songs features Jay-Z rapping a lyric of rock band, R.E.M. 's 1991 single "Losing My Religion ". [ 1 ] Following the album's release, Former frontman of R.E.M. Michael Stipe told NME that he's "thrilled" and it was a "great honor", that Jay-Z included the lyrics in one of his songs. [ 6 ] [ 7 ]

Critical reception Edit

Louis Pattison of NME gave a more mixed review, related to Jay-Z not taking full advantage of the subject matter. [ 12 ] Grant Jones of RapReviews said of the song, "the piercing "Heaven" starts off well, with an intrguing defence of Illuminati rumours from Jay, but shortly falls back on his lavish lifestyle, using Maybachs and Lamborghinis as metaphors for angels. [ 13 ] In a negative review, Colin McGuire of PopMatters called the R.E.M. sample awkward and cheesy. [ 14 ] Mike Diver of Clash also discredited Jay-Z for not taking advantage of the "rich imagery" of the R.E.M. sample. [ 15 ]
