Kanye West And Jay-Z Get The Throne Ready With “That’s My Bitch”
He just dropped a new album today, but if you’re Kanye West, you don’t wait to kick off your next project. ‘Ye is already halfway done recording his full-length LP Watch The Throne with Jay-Z, and the track “That’s My Bitch” surfaced today. In the song (which could double as the name of Jay and Kanye’s three-camera sitcom), ‘Ye talks about his manhood while Hova pits his wife Beyonce up against Mona Lisa and Marilyn Monroe. Listen to two of rap’s biggest names bust it out in the (tagged) track below.

Speaking of, that certainly sounds like Elly Jackson from La Roux singing on the hook, no? She also guested on Kanye’s “All Of The Lights“, although we still can’t find her voice buried in that track.
Jay, who has also made collaborative albums with Linkin Park and R. Kelly, tells MTV that working with ‘Ye was “recording on another level”.
“Monster” and “So Appalled” were originally intended for Watch The Throne, but they ended up on West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy instead. “We had done five [songs] so far, but then a few of them kind of were out there, and I put them on my album,” said Kanye. “Sorry, Jay.”
Are you getting excited for ‘Ye & Jay’s release? Or are you keeping your focus on West’s Fantasy for the time being?
