After numerous delays, it seems Jay-Z's "The Hits Collection -- Volume 1" will finally be released in November. The latest Universal Music Group release book has the compilation album scheduled for Nov. 23, just a day after Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" set hits stores.
The album will apparently be available as a regular CD and on vinyl, as well as a Deluxe Edition Package and a Collector's Edition Box set.
The Deluxe will be a two-disc set that will include five never-released tracks and a 32-page mini book debossed with Jay-Z's signature "diamond." The Collector's Edition will come in a hardcover box containing two-disc set with five never-released songs and a 100-page coffee table book filled with never-before-seen photographs of Jay-Z and friends.
While the UMGD release book has the project listed for Nov. 23, a rep at the label hasn't returned our calls to confirm the date at press time.
