A duo of hip-hop performers, JAY-Z and Kanye West, joined forces in 2010. So far they have have released two singles and one album. The much-talked about album, "Watch the Throne" was begun in November of 2010, and released in August, 2011. It is a combination of orchestral and progressive rock influences.
Lyrics deal with political and materialistic issues, opulence, fame, and the theme of the burdens success brings. Some have criticized the heavy nature of lyrics, and also the cohesiveness of the album. Still, it released and immediately moved to the number one position on charts. Still, it was ranked at the top by both critics and publishers.
This album was rated as platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and has sold well over a million copies in the United States alone. Jay-Z and West used a concert tour to promote the album. This tour extended from October to December, 2011. Jay-Z and West have collaborated with several singles over a long span of time, and included at least one album.
This album was originally designed to be released as a five-track EP. However, West revealed that it was going to be released as a full album, and would be collaboratively recorded in the south of France. It turned out the recording was not as simple as originally thought. The insistence on personal recording was blamed to be part of the difficulty and increased time required.
Recording of this album took place over several places, and hit many snags. There was some disagreement about early recordings, and almost all of it was scrapped in the final version. Recording began in earnest in January of 2011. A special group of recording artists and producers were invited, and many artists were involved in the making of the album. Several background vocalists were used, and a special extended track was recorded. All in all, "Watch the Throne" was an intense endeavor that has seemed to pay off well.
