Jay-Z and Kanye West to Release Joint Album This Week
Jay-Z and Kanye West are set to release their highly anticipated joint album 'Watch the Throne' within a week. West made the grand announcement while celebrating New Year's Eve in Las Vegas.
While performing his hit 'Runaway' and 'Monster' with Jay-Z, West took the opportunity to share with the audience at Marquee that the collaborative project would be coming sooner than expected. "We got that new 'Watch the Throne,' comin' in one week," he said a smiling at the crowd.
West first revealed the project's existence in August, when he announced on his Twitter account that he and Jay-Z would be dropping the five-song mini-album, with the first single set to be 'Monster.' He later announced that the EP would be turned into a full-length album, heading to England with Jay-Z to put in work on the LP.
West has described that the album is "going to be very dark and sexy, like couture hip-hop."
So far, 'Watch the Throne' has spawned the single 'That's My B***h' featuring Elly Jackson, with the track hitting the internet in late November. The project is said to feature production from Pete Rock and Q-Tip.
