Jay-Z has been hinting about an upcoming solo album, his first since 2009's The Blueprint 3. Now he says there also may be a second Watch the Throne project from him and Kanye West in 2012.

"We – I say 'we' because I'm in Throne mode – we're in a great place creatively," Jay told MTV News. "You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year . . . We really found our zone."

Before Watch the Throne was released in August, Jay-Z told reporters that he already had two new tracks done for his next solo record, but he's been quiet about it since.
