Jay-Z: Spike Jonze Will Direct "Otis" Video

Jay-Z Kanye West Otis

During his recent interview with Hot97, Jay-Z announced that auteur Spike Jonze will direct "Otis", the first single from Hova and Kanye's upcoming, highly anticipated collaborative album, Watch The Throne

This will be the third time this year Spike Jonze directs videos for artists that define the current pop music conversation: first with his Arcade Fire piece Scenes from the Suburbs, then with his awesome action figure video for the Beastie Boys, and now a clip for two of the most important hip hop artists of the last 10 years.

This isn't the first time Jonze collaborates with Kanye West. The two first got together in 2009 for the short film, We Were Once A Fairytale (no, not the Taylor Swift song).

Watch the Throne is out next week, August 8th. The "Otis" video should come soon after.
