Mon, 19 Jun 2017 11:04:04
Jay Z is the proud father of twins, and has just announced a new album. The new record, titled 4:44 — yep, turns out the rumors were right — is due out June 30th and will be exclusively available through his streaming platform, TIDAL.
Earlier this month, a film produced by TIDAL, also titled 4:44, was announced, starring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong'o, and Danny Glover. The relationship between the movie and the album is currently unknown. When the first posters for the film began to appear, fans of the rapper began to speculate whether an album announcement was imminent, turns out it was, but Hov just wanted to string everyone on a bit longer. Part of a new song, "Adnia", soundtracked a commercial that debuted over the weekend for 4:44, which will also premieres exclusively on TIDAL June 30th.
As previously mentioned — and as the internet is currently losing its mind over — Jay Z also became the proud father of twins. He and his wife Beyonce announced that the babies were born over the weekend. There is still no knowledge of the exact date of the twins birth.
It looks like this will certainly be the summer of Bey Z, and we can't wait for Hov to take over the airwaves again. 4:44 will be the rapper's first release since 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail.
