All it takes is a hint of a new Jay-Z album to get hip-hop fans into a frenzy.

In December, Hovito said we might get a solo LP from him and a second Throne album in 2012. There hasn’t been any talk since, but when MTV News caught up with Pharrell earlier this month, we had to ask if that’s still the plan.

“We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Skateboard P said after a long pause.

The Neptunes producer contributed “Gotta Have It” to last year’s Watch the Throne album and also laid the beat for Jay’s Blue Ivy dedication, “Glory.”

Through the years, Jigga has logged a ton of time with the Neptunes captain, starting with 2000′s “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).” Since then, Hov and P have hooked up on a number of notable tracks, including “Excuse Me Miss” from 2002′s The Blueprint 2 LP and the Neptunes’ 2003 hit “Frontin’.”

“We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively,” Jay said of his and Kanye West’s chemistry. “You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we’re really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone.”

With things still in the works, Pharrell is reluctant to let go of any info. Instead, he’d rather just let Jay speak on things when he is ready. “Well, you know, he’s very discreet about details and stuff,” P said. “I’m just a filmmaker, musically. I let everybody else play the roles.”

Making A Hit Pop Song Is Seriously Much Easier Than You’d Think (Video)

It’s not exactly a secret that pop music, for the most part, sucks. I’m not one of those people to criticize others for their taste in entertainment, but it’s hard to argue that most hit songs aren’t just some combination of a generic melody, repetitive lyrics and an attractive person (vocal talent is preferred, but […]
