Will Jay-Z and Kanye West Collaborate on Music Again?
These two rappers are the kings of the music industry but put them together and they’re much more. Will Jay-Z and Kanye West collaborate on music again? Will they release a second Watch Time Throne album? Here’s what we know about these rappers and their future projects.
Kanye West and Jay-Z released ‘Watch The Throne’ back in 2011
These rappers are dominating the charts and the music community. Jay-Z released award-winning music songs like “Empire State of Mind” and “Run This Town.” Kanye West released songs like “Power” and “FourFiveSeconds.” Together, though, they’re even more powerful.
Kanye West and Jay-Z collaborated on music in the past, both performing on the 2005 song “Diamonds from Sierra Leone.” On the 2011 release, Watch The Throne, both artists rapped alongside one another. Almost 10 years later, fans are asking for these artists to reunite for another album.
Back in 2018, Rolling Stone reported that Watch The Throne 2 was on the way following a promising tweet from Kanye. Only two years prior, Kanye West said that the album was “never” coming, so some fans took his announcement with a grain of salt.
“There will never be a Watch The Throne 2,” Ye said at the 2016 Seattle stop of the Saint Pablo tour. “You know why? Because that’s the reason why I wasn’t on the song [“Pop Style”]. I wasn’t on this song, because of Hov.”
Will there be a ‘Watch The Throne 2’ album?
There no word regarding if or when Jay-Z and Kanye West will drop music together or even if they’re still talking. Since Kanye West’s brush with gospel music and Christianity, some fans think that this collaboration may be farther away than originally anticipated.
In fact, since Kanye West premiered Jesus is King, the artist rarely appeared working together. The artists have been considerably busy, though. Kanye West hosted “Sunday Service” gospel concerts.
Jay-Z appeared on the song for Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift, an album inspired by the story of Disney’s photo-real film. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, production and the release date of a number of albums have been paused or canceled.
Kanye West is now running for president
Kanye West differs in political opinion from Beyoncé and Jay-Z quite a bit. While Beyoncé advocated for and empowered the Black community, Kanye stated that slavery was “a choice.”
Beyoncé also posted a picture for Instagram, endorsing Democrat Beto O’Rourke for Senate. Kanye West endorsed President Donald Trump, later running for president himself. He even earned early support from Telsa’s Elon Musk, although he later retracted his support.
Presumably, more information regarding Kanye West’s political campaign will be announced in the coming weeks. Music by both Kanye West and Jay-Z are available on streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
