It still amazes us that Watch The Throne, the album co-starring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm], somehow managed to avoid being leaked ahead of its release.
The album only hit stores yesterday and it’s already projected to sell 400,000-500,000 copies in the first week.
But if that weren’t exciting enough, we’re also getting a sneak peek at the Throne’s first music video for “Otis!”
We’ve been watching this clip on repeat for the past hour, so you know it has to be good!
Yeezy and Hova show us how awesome it is to be a rap superstar by fooling around in the studio and lighting up fireworks.
Ah, to be young and rich!
The vid is directed by the critically-acclaimed Spike Jonze, who is best-known for his work on the indie favorites Where The Wild Things Are and Being John Malkovich.
The full music video will premiere tomorrow at 8:56pm EST/PST on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, BET, and Centric.
