Jay-Z and Kanye West are heard but not seen in their new music video for their "Watch the Throne" track, "No Church in the Wild."
The Romain Gavras-directed video for the album standout is set in the streets of Prague and filled with scenes of Molotov cocktails and tense standoffs between police and protesters.
But for every masked fellow we see in the clip, none of them are Jay, Kanye or collaborator Frank Ocean, which left Entertainment Weekly wishing a famous face would appear to "spice things up a bit."
But MTV thought seeing one of the superstar rappers would've disrupted the video's intense imagery, noting that without an obvious storyline, "viewers are expected to rely on their own interpretations" of what Gavras presents.
One place fans will see Jay and 'Ye is on tour in Europe for "Watch for Throne" - and said fanatics might also soon hear a follow-up to the 2011 record.
Hit songmaker Mike Dean, who's affiliated with West’s G.O.O.D music label, reportedly told Quiet Lunch Magazine that while another collaborative album between the two hasn't started yet, it's on the way.
That is, when they get a chance: Aside from this summer's "Watch the Throne" tour, Kanye just premiered his new film short, “Cruel Summer” at the Cannes Film Festival, and Jay is rumored to have signed on as a musical director for the latest film adaptation of “Annie,” the one that Willow Smith will reportedly star in.
