Watch the Throne, A Year Later: By The Numbers

This week marks one year since the release of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album, Watch the Throne. Before the actual release—digitally on August 8, 2011, and with physical copies on August 12, 2011—there was plenty of hype surrounding the project. And rightfully so. Hov and ‘Ye were (are) two of the game’s biggest and best; their track record together was nearly impeccable; their rollout for the project—or lack thereof, as they did no press leading up to the release and revolutionarily found a way to ensure the album would not leak—only served to build the suspense and anticipation. Once the album hit, few came away disappointed. Now, a year later, XXL takes a look back at some of the project’s impact, By The Numbers. —XXL Staff (@XXL)
