Jay-Z: New ‘Watch The Throne’ Album In 2012?

Jay-Z has hinted in an interview with MTV news that next year a second album could come out of his ‘Watch The Throne’ collaboration project with Kanye West.

This will be the follow-up to the first joint album, which was released earlier this year, and will come after the two record their own solo material.

“We – I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode – we’re in a great place creatively,” said Jay-Z to MTV News. “You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year … We really found our zone.”

The duo got into a bit of trouble with the first album, after it was revealed that they had used a sample that was unauthorised, and were threatened to be sued by publishing company The Numero Group. The rappers sampled soul singer Syl Johnson’s Different Strokes on The Joy, which Kayne could use for a bonus track on his last studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, once they had agreed to a fee, but no money was ever paid.

Kanye West will be back out here on the Big Day Out 2012 line-up in January.
