Kanye West and Jay-Z have just hosted another listening party for their upcoming joint album "Watch the Throne". Unlike the previous one which was low key and attended by a handful of selected music journalists and two lucky fans, this latest bash is a star-studded affair.
Busta Rhymes, Jada Pinkett Smith and Q-Tip were among the attendees. The former Destiny's Child members, Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland, who reunited last week for Kelly's album party once again met each other for the occasion. Jigga's sister-in-law Solange Knowles came to show her support as well.
The private party took place at the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The gathering seemed to serve as a launching party as well since it was held only a week before the album comes out in the U.S. on August 8.
Earlier in the day, Jigga did an interview in Angie Martinez's radio show, talking about the new album and his friendship with Kanye among other things. "I think this album is the perfect album at the perfect time," he gushed. Commenting on the music video for "Otis" which is directed by Spike Jonze, he said, "It's very simple and very amazing."
When addressing rumor that he has feud with Kanye, Jigga laughed it off. "Kanye's my brother," he stated. "Yes, we get on each other's nerves. We push each other to be greater. Of course, there are times when we're in the studio and we're yelling. I would never disrespect that man or put my hands on him."
