Published Jun 29, 2017After teasing a new project called 4:44, rap god JAY-Z announced that his new album would be out on June 30. As promised, his latest long player has now arrived.
The follow up to 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail is exclusive to Hova's streaming service Tidal. It contains 10 songs, and the tracklist includes guest appearances from Frank Ocean ("Caught Their Eyes"), Damian Marley ("Bam") and The-Dream ("Marcy Me"). It's a family affair: his mother Gloria Carter is a featured guest on "Smile," his wife Beyoncé contributes vocals to "Family Feud," and his daughter Blue Ivy is on "Legacy."
Reports have suggested that 4:44 is a visual project. For now it's only audio, and the track "The Story of O.J." is the sole video.
Listen to 4:44 below. You can only hear the whole thing with a Tidal subscription.
