Watch The Throne, Jay-Z and Kanye West. Eminently listenable, bordering on true excellence (if you can forgive the sampling). Released only yesterday (12-Aug), I predict this will be huger than huge, and will dominate American wedding receptions come spring 2012. Exemplary tracks: Otis (feat. Otis Redding), Murder to Excellence, Made in America, Why I Love You, Illest Motherfucker Alive.
As an aside, there's something about Jay-Z that reminds me of Sinatra at his best. Not sure what that is yet, frankly.
