Jay-Z's Manager: 'Watch the Throne' Will Not Leak

  /  08.03.2011

Kanye West and Jay-Z

With less than a week to go before Watch the Throne hits iTunes, don’t expect any leaks. Those hoping to get their hands on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album early are in for disappointment.

“It is not going to leak,” tweeted a confident John Meneilly, Jay-Z’s manager. In order to prevent the album from leaking in advance, digital and physical release dates were staggered.

Throne, which boasts contributions from Beyoncé, Q-Tip, Frank Ocean, Swizz Beatz, and more, will be available exclusively on iTunes on August 8 and at all digital and physical retailers on August 12.

The Otis Redding-sampled single “Otis” is already off to a good start, moving 47-12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in its second week. The album remains in the top 3 on iTunes based on pre-orders alone.

Tickets for the rap titans’ joint tour were available for pre-sale on Tuesday, while the general public will be able to purchase tickets starting August 8.
