This would be a FANTASTIC Independence Day treat!
Earlier this month, the official tracklist was released for Jay-Z and Kanye West's upcoming collaborative album Watch the Throne, and were VERY excited…especially for their collaboration with both Beyonce AND Bruno Mars!
Now, we're hearing rumors that the album may be released on July 4th. The rumors stem from a report released by The Source earlier this month.
Here's what CyHi the Prynce, from Kanye's G.O.O.D music roster, had to say about the album's release date:

It sounds like it's getting serious!
Things are reportedly heating up between Christina Aguilera and her new man, Matt Rutler, and the singer even left her son with ex-husband Jordan Bratman to spend the long holiday weekend in the Burlesque production assistant's native Rhode Island - and to meet his family!
A source explains:
"This is the first Thanksgiving she was without Max. It was really hard for her and she was feeling sad, so she decided to go to the East Coast with Matt and a group of friends. Since his family lives so close, they decided to drop in for a few hours. They’re still getting to know each other better."
Wow! That's a pretty big step!
We wonder if this rebound is going to turn into the real deal! You don't just go home to meet Mom for funsies!
What do U think?? Do U like Christina and her new man together??
