West says 'Watch The Throne' release is just around the corner

Kanye West has said that his joint album with Jay-Z, ‘Watch The Throne’, is “coming in one week”.

The rapper made the declaration while partying with Jay-Z at the Marquee nightclub in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve (December 31), reports Billboard.

As one club reveller’s video footage shows (scroll down and click below to watch), West‘s announcement was made after enjoying a few sips of champagne, so the release schedule news may not be gospel.

However, speaking last October, West explained that he and Jay-Z would not be taking too long to make the album. “We’re going to the south of France at the end of this month, just to record new ideas,” he said. “We’ll probably be done with the album in a day or whatever.”

He added: “We’ve done about five [songs] so far… but we got some more. But think about it, it’s really easy; he only has to think of 10 verses.”
