"Watch the Throne" Not Dropping July 4
Reports hit the Internet yesterday (June 30) that the highly-anticipated Kanye West/Jay-Z collaborative album Watch the Throne would be released on July 4th. There was buzz that the album would be a digital-only released that would be made available on iTunes on Independence Day.
According to VH1, there is no truth to the rumors, however. "We spoke to sources close to Jay-Z's management team earlier today who have direct knowledge of the album's release plans, and they confirmed that the rumored July 4th release date is 'not happening,'" VH1 said via statement. "Sorry to ruin your holiday, folks!"
It has been reported that Jay and Kanye have completed recordings for the album.
