On the new Pop Shop Podcast, we talk about what the future holds for the surprise collab on West's upcoming "Donda" album.
At the Donda album listening event in Atlanta on Thursday, West surprised the Mercedes-Benz Stadium crowd when Jay's voice rang out on the final track played. According to Mark Elibert, who covered the event for Billboard, "The song featured an electric guitar-laden beat with Kanye singing about going to jail with an unexpected guest feature. JAY-Z crept onto the track with a smooth flow that announced the possible return of The Throne."
The pair already have a prolific history on the charts, with 11 Billboard Hot 100 hits together as artists, including three top 10s. West also produced three top 10s for Jay-Z that West didn’t appear on as an artist, including “Izzo (HOVA)” and “03 Bonnie & Clyde” with Beyoncé. And of course, there’s the Watch the Throne album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2011.
