Earlier this morning Kanye West tweeted the image of the Riccardo Tisci-designed cover of the mysteriously titled “H.A.M.”, the first single off ‘Ye’s upcoming collaborative LP with Jay-Z, Watch The Throne. And while we’re still sitting here scratching our noggins over what the heck “H.A.M.” stands for, one thing is very apparent—Kanye and Jay’s single is arriving January 11 (per West’s tweet), i.e. the same day as Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me.” While you ponder which highly-anticipated single will rule the charts in the weeks to come, head below to see the “H.A.M.” cover in its full glory. In addition to being a pal of Material Girl Madonna—for whom he’s designed many stage costumes and outfits—Riccardo Tisci is the menswear and accessories designer for Givenchy.
