Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne was released on iTunes Monday, August 8th 2011. Hours later, it shot to No. 1 on iTunes albums sales charts in 23 countries, including the U.S., Australia, Mexico and New Zealand.
The physical version of WTT (Watch The Throne) won't be available until August 12, but that didn't stop rap fans in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the United Kingdom from propelling the album to the top spot of the digital distributors chart. Adele's 21 continued to do well, snagging the #2 slot in 12 of the 23 countries where Throne dominated, but when the official sales numbers come in next week, it is likely that Hov and Yeezy will sit atop the Billboard albums chart.
I bought the album today and so far I have to say that I'm really excited to see some of the videos that will be coming out from this album. A few stars made some appearances on the album with some feature records. Such artists like Beyonce on a record called Lift Off , and new artist Frank Ocean, which i wrote an article about last week, he appears on 2 songs on the album. No Church In The Wild and Made In America.
Take a listen to one of the singles from the album, OTIS featuring Otis Redding.
