The first merger of [Beyoncé and Minaj] feels very Watch the Throne. Jay Z and Kanye’s joint effort was so seminal, for so many people, because as a duo they went from two human artists to a mythical unit. It’s why things like the “Otis” video will never, ever get old. Because such an extreme level of I Don’t GAF was never supposed to happen. It’s why their giant smiles are so great to watch, because it’s almost as if they know this was never supposed to happen. As if it’s a fantasy, even for them.

Yes. Album is coming July 30th, Braveheart. I’m super excited. It’s definitely top 40ish and that’s what we were trying to do with the platform that we have with ‘Army Wives’, it just makes perfect sense because that’s that audience. Everyone says it’s such a huge record, but obviously we have to have and find the right home for it to give it what it needs. When I got the ‘Army Wives’ series, I was like, ‘Oh, we gotta infiltrate and get it in there
