There was unexpected news from Kanye West at the New Year’s Eve party at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. After his huge success with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and the “Good Fridays” series of weekly new tracks, Kanye announced a collaboration album with “retired” rapper Jay-Z to be released within a week.
The album had already been mentioned on Twitter back in August as being in the works:
“Me and jay bout to drop a 5 song album called “Watch the Throne”
But after that came no other news, until a drunk Kanye’s anouncement at the NYE party.
The rapper’s label Def Jam denies the soon-to-be release date, claiming instead that the album drops March 1st. But with Kanye and Jigga you never know.
A single by the duo will come out Friday the 7th. A title or lyrics haven’t leaked yet, but after the highly appraised My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, expectations are high.
