On April 29, 2013 Rolling Stone gave the song "Numbers on the Boards" 4 out of 5 stars, stating "The star is Kanye West's beat, a contusive bass blur with percussion that's like bamboo sticks on a busted radiator. The result is near-perfect no-bullshit hip-hop." On May 9, 2013, the music video was released for "Numbers on the Boards" which featured cameo appearances from Kanye West and Chief Keef. The video was shot in Paris. The Kanye West and Don Cannon-produced song was then released as the album's second single the following day.
