Jay-Z, Kanye West Played 'N*ggas In Paris' 7 Times At Detroit Show

Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Watch The Throne" tour came to Detroit on Saturday to a massive crowd at the Palace.

The duo played 39 songs total, for a two-and-a-half hour set. Many of those were classic solo hits, but the pair also seemed particularly drawn to the song off their joint-effort "Watch The Throne" album. They were so drawn, in fact, that they performed "N*ggas in Paris" seven times.

The multiple-encore is apparently not a new phenomenon, at least on this tour. West and Jay-Z played the same song six times at a previous show in Boston. And before that, they played "N*ggas in Paris" five times in Miami.

Kansas City, Mo., is up next. Will they break the record and get to hear "N*ggas in Paris" eight times? Maybe fans should just be grateful the increase isn't exponential.
