Jay-Z Confirms Track Listing for Kanye West Collaboration ‘Watch the Throne’
Last month an alleged track listing for the album was released, and while that list has turned out to be false, a few of those titles are in fact on the record.
The standard edition of 'Throne' features 12 titles, including 'Welcome to the Jungle,' 'Who Gon Stop Me,' and 'No Church in the Wild.'
Guest performers include Beyonce, Frank Ocean of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, and Mr. Hudson, who sang the chorus on Jay-Z's hit 'Young Forever.'
Also making an appearance is soul legend Otis Redding, who earns a featured credit from beyond the grave on the track 'Otis.' Perhaps the rappers are incorporating a sample of Redding's '(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay?'
Among the four bonus tracks is 'H*A*M,' the single released in January, as well as a song called 'The Joy,' featuring another late R&B artist, Curtis Mayfield.
Fans can pre-order the album in CD and MP3 form, through Life + Times, though the site doesn't specify an official release date.
