Jay-Z & Kanye West's highly anticipated album, Watch The Throne has been in the works since August of last year. The first official single, "H*A*M" (produced by Lex Luger) was announced via Twitter by Kanye in January. In late January, he tweeted that a new album would be coming summer 2011.
In early July, a track list of the upcoming joint album was revealed. On July 20, the track titled "Otis" (which samples Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness"), was digitally released for download.
I actually like the old school vibe on the track.
Watch The Throne is by Def Jam Records, featuring artists like Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, and Mr. Hudson. According to iTunes, it's expected release date is August 8th. The album is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Will you be buying your copy?
