Right when people were convinced Watch the Throne was not going to happen, Jay-Z and Kanye West released "Otis." In a matter of days, "Otis" was followed by the album. Now, everyone is freestyling over the "Otis" track and discussing the album.

Watch the Throne is much more than buzz, as the album has also sold well. The sales have been adding up for days now. Two weeks after the album was released Watch the Throne has been on top of the charts.

While hip hop music is ever-popular, albums rarely certify gold. Based off the names, alone the album was able to sell. Watch the Throne certified gold today, selling 613,000 copies since its release. Other albums to certify gold in 2011 have been Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers, Beyonce's 4, and Chris Brown's F.A.M.E.
