Watch the ThroneKanye West's album with Jay-Z — could be coming out next week, if West's off-the-cuff remark on New Year's Eve is true. "Watch the Throne, coming in one week!" West blurted out in the middle of his performance of "Runaway" at the Marquee nighclub in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve.

Though this collaboration with Jay-Z has been in the works for some time, no release date had been scheduled.

Given that West has leaked a lot of his own music over the past several months — including tracks earmarked for Watch the Throne and most of his universally acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy before it hit stores — it wouldn't be completely out of character for him to drop the entire disc for free before putting it on sale.
