Thursday, Jun 9, 2011 3:45PM
Grammy-winning rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West may not have a new single on their hands yet but the hip-hop duo are reportedly dropping their delayed Watch the Throne album next month.
According to reports, Jigga and Ye will finally meet fans' demands by releasing the joint LP on Independence Day.
The Source has received a solid date for the release of Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative and highly anticipated album Watch The Throne: July 4th. The information was shared exclusively to The Source by a source very close to the Hov and Ye super project. Later on this evening there will be a G.O.O.D. Music event presented by Heineken and Kanye West held at a still undisclosed location in New York City. Rumors are speculating that at said event, Kanye and Jay-Z might be making an announcement about the July 4th release date. Once the July 4th date is confirmed, remember that you heard it here first. Fireworks indeed. (The Source)
Earlier this week, a partial tracklisting leaked onto the Internet.
1. 'Lift Off' feat. Beyonce & Bruno Mars 2. 'Murder to Excellence' 3. 'Illest Motherf---er Alive' 4. 'Why I Love You So (Guilt Trip)' 5. 'That S--- Crazy' 6. 'Living So Italian' 7. 'Who Gonna Stop Me' 8. 'Whole Lifetime' 9. 'We Are Young' 10. 'Anthem' (The Boom Box)
While initially presented as a speculated list, confirmation on the tracks' authenticity has also emerged.
This just in: the Watch The Throne tracklisting floating around this morning via DOTR is in fact real. The highly anticipated joint project between Ye and Jay, which was said to see the light of day around March looks like it's getting the finishing touches because a source EXTREMELY close to the project just confirmed with me these song titles are legit, however more songs are said to be added.

Rumors of Beyonce and Bruno Mars' presence on the LP circulated over the Internet last month.
If you thought "H.A.M" sucked and thought that Watch The Throne thing wasn't happening anymore, think again. Kanye West and Jay-Z are preparing for "Lift Off," the first single from their highly anticipated long-awaited collaborative album, and have snatched up BeyoncĂ© and Bruno Mars for the Jeff Bhasker-produced number impacting radio and your iTunes music library sooner than you think. Yeah, that definitely explains the random trips to Paris. (Complex)
Watch the Throne is slated to drop Monday, July 4th.
