Jay-Z On 99 Jamz in Miami
Jay-Z explains the meaning behind, “Watch The Throne,” the album marketing strategy and reception so far.
Im not really understanding how he says it’s the “return of the boom-bap”. That’s exactly what I thought wasn’t on the album. The Joy is a boom-bap record and the rest of the record sounds more electronic.
@RealTalkLl he was refering to the track otis idiot………
#1 in 23 countries, otis has 4.1mill views in 2days, and they sold the album for $15 instead of $10.Jay wins again…..hows that carter 4 doing? red album? take care?…..didn’t think so.
@throne we don’t know because it hasn’t dropped yet smart guy
He is smart marketing wise, but as far as all that he brought hip-hop back stuff is not so true. This guy is sucking him to much. The album was kind of like 50 cents “Curtis.” Call me a hater if you want, but the album is not all that. The marketing strategy is!
Watch The Throne sounds like a record Rich Old White Men would listen to at one of their Wine & Cheese, Pass the Grey Poupon gatherins
“Jeeves, be a good boy and Play that nice Watch the throne, and bring me some Caviar”
Fuck outta here with these 2 Carlton Banks knock offs, I cant sit here and nod my head to this shit
Mr.Throne Carter $ will outsell the album there marketing strategy is better they put out floods of music that makes you want more. And when how to love video drop i guarantee 4mil videos in one day…
“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man…” – Jay-Z Follow me on Twitter @iCry5tal & I’ll follow u back…
LMAO@fans caring about the numbers. I will care about the numbers when these niggas give me a profit off their album sales. Jay-z and Kanye might be on to something. This is the only album in YEARS , maybe a decade that didn’t get leaked. I don’t know what they did right on this album. But, other artists should follow suit or quit whining about the leaks. These cocky bastards just educated niggas ….what a shame and niggas still complain. LMAO
It didnt leak bcus they didnt leak it. Pretty much all leaks are done on purpose to get feedback and create hype.
I like “Joy”(of course),”that’s my bitch”, and “new day” and umm i believe that’s it
Jay is a genius..He marketed Ye’s skills and threw in a few weak bars on an album, and put his name on it. The production is sick, the creativity is next level the hooks are good, but the rhymes are madd weak. He made millions OMG
lol 23 disappointed fans,one thing I’ve notice about jay-z over the years is..the longer he takes to release uh album the worse it is and vice versa.American gangster released on it’s first due date..Amazing album, BP3 released late after being pushed back uh few times..mediocre album, and now this one..but I wouldn’t call this album mediocre it’s close to being bad..minus the two singles H.A.M and otis their were only a few good songs that I liked on the album..I remember a radio host saying this album sounded like a kanye album with a whole bunch of jay-z features and he’s right, listen to the beat production and all of the hooks on the songs it has kanye name all over it.
Album was marketed perfectly. It has alot of hype and the video for Otis was dropped perfect timing.. But the album it self felt rushed and poor. If it was just two average rappers doing a duo than it would be decent. TO me WTT fell short
I wonder why he is back tracking….Watch the Throne do not refer to the Hip Hop genre it’s was meant to let the other rappers know they are on top of HIP HOP making more money then them. I guess after reading some of the album reviews from fans and media they are backtracking. If it was an album put out from some unknowns people would be calling it garbage….from their names alone is selling…but I really think they are upset because they thought they crafted a masterpiece…LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO The THRONE is in DANGER and it’s up for the taking because they most definitely did not capture the SEAT!
When the fuck did people start careing about how an album is marketed? What the fuck is wrong with you all?

At first I didn’t like the album. But after going back into the lab and listening to every track, album grew on me. Jay goes in on some tracks, but Kanye steps his game up on this one. Overall, I think it’s a great album. This is a classic, ya bugging.
