Kanye West has taken it to his Twitter to announce when he is going to release his duet album with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne". "Watch the throne coming in 2 months!!!!!!!!!!" the G.O.O.D Music rap mogul wrote in all-capital letters.

Beside giving a clue on the release date of the joint project, Kanye also spilled beans on his next solo studio effort. "I'll be back this summer!!!!!!!!!!" he revealed. "My new album coming this summer." Additionally, he stated, "All the Lights video in 1 week!!!!!!"

"All the Lights" is an all-star single taken from his fifth studio album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". It features the likes of Rihanna, Elton John, La Roux's Elly Jackson, Stacy Ferguson and Alicia Keys. The music video is directed by Hype Williams and will likely have RiRi making a cameo.

Early version of the song featured Drake but he was dropped from the featured guests line-up. He commented on the removal, "We make music differently. I make what comes to me and I hate changing it, whereas 'Ye will change something 30 or 40 times to get it perfect. To each their own, and the change was to put all those people on it, and I wasn't one of them. That's completely OK."

Drake must have been gutted! I see Kanye as backing up his boy Cudi on this one, getting rid of the competition in Drake.
