Jay-Z Scores Collaboration With Sade + Readies The Release Of "Watch The Throne" With Kanye West
Jay-Z is about to take the game over once again thanks to two high-profile collaborations. Not only is he ready to release the Kanye West duet album Watch The Throne everybody's been waiting on, but he can lay claim to being one of the first artists ever to hop on a track with Sade. Deets inside...
Although she said previously that turned her back on collaborations, Sade has tapped Jay-Z for an upcoming Ultimate Collection set for a track called "Moon & The Sky." The project is currently scheduled for a May 3rd release and will make Jay the first hip-hop artist to work with the "Smooth Operator" singer. This ought to be interesting.
And his album with Kanye, Watch The Throne, is almost done, according to an interview producer Young Guru did with Vibe.com.
“Right now, I’m really trying to get Jay and Kanye to hurry up and finish this Watch The Throne album because the world needs to hear it. It just needs little tweaks and things like that. But the core of the album is finished.”
And rapper Talib Kweli, who also knows a little bit about the album, recently said,
"I think the most unexpected part is kind of out the way with 'H.A.M.' That was probably the last kind of track I was expecting to hear from Jay and Kanye, but they definitely have some tricks up their sleeves. And they have some types of songs that you would think they might have. They really did a good job at covering all aspects, from the songs I've heard."
Sounds like we can expect a lot from this album. But there is still no official release date....
