In 2010, DJ Khaled said, err, screamed Put Your Hands Up. More than a year later, 50 Cent went on to say the exact same thing. And, as you’re probably well aware, this trend continued into 2012, which found Young Chris asking fans to put their Hands Up High. Now, a little less than 365 days later, Swizz Beatz looks to end the summer on a high note with the star-studded release of new single Hands Up. Joining Mr. Alicia Keys in celebration are, in order, a slightly more spastic Weezy than we’ve heard over the past year, a tough talking Nicki Minaj, an almost out of breathe Rick Ross and 2 Chainz (sorry, there was nothing interesting or groundbreaking about his closing verse). There is no word yet on where Hands Up will appear, but keep it locked to The DJBooth for all the latest.
