If Jay-Z and Kanye West are the Throne, then what’s that make Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake? Believe it or not, we may find out this summer.
According to separate reports in the New York Post and Showbiz 411, Jay-Z and Timberlake will soon announce a joint tour. However, there are conflicting details. The Post reports that the two musicians will “launch a 10-city stadium tour together,” while Showbiz 411 says “Justin will announce a tour starting in late summer of arenas, with Jay Z.”
Update: Rolling Stone is also reports that “while talks are still ongoing, the tour as currently planned would include 11 to 13 stadium dates.”
In an interview prior to last weekend’s Grammy Awards, Timberlake confirmed plans to tour behind his new album and seemed to allude to the star-studded collaboration. “We’re definitely going to go on tour,” Timberlake explained. “I don’t know how much I should say… It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that.”
