Jay-Z and Kanye West released one of the biggest albums of 2011 with Watch the Throne. The album features a huge variety of artists from Otis Redding to Beyonce to RZA and somehow they all come together in perfect harmony to create this masterpiece.

The album’s cover is also a work of art and unlike any other. The details show the amount of thought that was put behind the design, which was done by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci.  The gold colour and three-dimensional aspect of the album cover makes you feel like you are holding a piece of luxury. Opening the album reveals even more intricate design elements that reflect the dedication involved not only towards making great music but also the overall artistic vision.
