Is A New Jay Z Album On The Way?

Over the past few years there has been rumor after rumor about Jay Z working on his new album. But after his wife, Beyoncé, dropped Lemonade, the rumors intensified — everyone was wondering how Hov might respond. Yet no word ever came. Then it was announced Beyonce and Jay Z had twins on the way and everything was more or less swept under the rug, and talk of the new album died down to whispers. That is until today.
Those who peruse the internet may have noticed a variety of ads over the last 24 hours with just the number "4:44" on it. Other individuals just walking the street of New York may have looked around and seen billboards with the same number. What does this all mean?
Frankly, we have no idea. But many seem to be speculating that it's signaling a new Jay Z album. If one looks at the code to the internet advertisements, they will notice that these ads have been paid for by Tidal — which is probably the strongest evidence out there that this has anything to do with Jay Z. In the same source code, people might also notice the word "Superhero", is this the name of the album? We still don't know. Another interesting piece adding a little big more fuel to the fire is AintNoJigga posting to twitter "13th". AintNoJigga is one of the bigger Jay Z fan pages, and Hov's next studio album will be his 13th.
The rest of the "evidence" surrounding the "4:44" seems a bit forced and has to do with Beyonce and Jay Z's matching "IV" tattoos. But we are certainly crossing our fingers and hoping these internet rumors turn out to be true.
