Jay Z – 4:44 Album (Zip Download)
Shortly after formally announcing the album Monday morning, Hov shared a 30-second snippet from a song called “Adnis.”
“Letter to my dad that I never wrote
Speeches I prepared that I never spoke
Words on a paper that I never read
Proses never penned, they stayed in my head”
It might be a visual album

During Game 3 of the NBA Finals, TIDAL debuted this following minute-long trailer featuring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danny Glover. Don’t be surprised if Jay released 4:44 as a visual album a la Beyonce’s Lemonade.
Jay Z has logged time in the studio this year with Swizz Beatz and Zaytoven. According to LA-based filmmaker Chris Black, 4:44 is produced entirely by No I.D. More likely, No I.D. is the album’s executive producer.
It will be available exclusively on Sprint and TIDAL

It should come as a surprise as no one who has followed Jay Z’s ownership of TIDAL that 4:44 will be released as a Sprint and TIDAL exclusive. Sprint acquired a 33% ownership stake in TIDAL for $200 million earlier this year. Hov released Magna Carta Holy Grail as a Samsung exclusive in 2013.
