Beyoncé Supports Jay-Z and Kanye at a Listening Party For Their New Album
Some lucky fans in NYC were able to attend a listening party for Kayne West and Jay-Z's new album, Watch the Throne, last night at the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium! Both Kanye and Jay-Z were on hand for the evening, and the latter's wife, Beyoncé Knowles, brought along her friend Kelly Rowland. Jay and Kanye's record will be out next Tuesday, Aug. 8, and the hard cover version will be accompanied by cover art from Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci. Their latest single, "Otis," has an upcoming video directed by Spike Jonze set to debut soon, too. There's also a tour coming up for Jay-Z and Kanye West, with dates to come this Fall. Jay-Z made time yesterday to swing by the studios of the radio station Hot 97, where he spoke about his relationship with Kanye. Jay said of their working relationship, "Yes, we get on each other's nerves, but that's part of pushing each other. We push each other. The people who have a problem with Kanye or myself are the people that are complacent in life. People don't like to be pushed. It's, like, annoying. It's a thing when people are pushing you to be greater, and we push each other to be greater. So of course there are times when we're in the studio, we're yelling, but that's about it."
