Kanye West tweets cover 'Watch the Throne' with Jay-Z
First track, "H.A.M." comes out Jan. 11
When Kanye West and Jay-Z offhandedly announced on New Year’s Eve that “Watch The Throne,” their joint album would come out next week, the fact that they were both drinking huge bottles of champagne at the time cast doubt on whether that was the alcohol talking, but now we have proof that 1-11-11 is the day for the release of the first single from the project.
Late Thursday evening (Jan. 6), West turned to his old friend, Twitter, to post what could be the cover art, which very clearly has a Jan. 11, 2011 date stamped across the top (although at the bottom, it says “Kayne/Jay-Z/Watch the Throne/Coming Soon.”
- Check out everything there is including photos, reviews, videos.
There were many reports early Thursday that the album would be out in March, leading further credence to the notion that we may just be getting a single on next Tuesday. Plus, even though West may have moved on from “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” which came out less than two months ago and topped many “Best of 2010” lists, we’re sure his label would like to have it live on briefly without new competition from West.
Of course, the two have worked together for more than a decade, starting with 2000's "This Can't Be Life." Popeater has a fun look at their history, including a very subjective list of their 11 best collaborations out of their more than 30 recordings together.
