Rap megastars Jay Z and Kanye West released their highly anticipated album Watch The Throne (pictured above) on iTunes on Monday, and fans from all over the world immediately made it shoot to the #1 spot in a staggering 23 different countries (including the UK).

With very little information in the media, no lead singles, and, perhaps most surprisingly, no online leak prior to its release, the LP's success in just under two days is nothing short of staggering.

Artists such as Beyonce, The Neptunes, Swizz Beatz, Q-Tip, Mr. Hudson and Frank Ocean all feature on the album. Expect also samples from La Roux, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, Cassius, James Brown and even Will Ferrell. Have a listen to album track Otis (featuring Otis Redding) below:

And here's a teaser for the video:
