Last Friday, JAY-Z released his highly anticipated new album 4:44. The record immediately caused a stir across the internet due to its revealing comments on the rapper's relationship with his wife Beyoncé, his beef with Kanye, and his thoughts on race issues. The album was completely produced by No I.D., and it surprised listeners when it came in at 10 tracks with just over 36 minutes of material. Thankfully it turns out that we can expect a few more tracks from the rap legend.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, No I.D. explained more is coming, "There's three more songs that are coming out as bonuses. James Blake came in and joined into the process. There's more coming shortly that's equally as revealing." A few more details were revealed by longtime JAY-Z engineer Young Guru who tweeted, "Guys calm down Adnis will be on the physical copies. If you guys act right I may slip a couple other songs on there.. shhh don't tell jay." A few seconds of the track "Adnis" appeared on the first trailer for 4:44.
So in good news, it seems like a physical release will be happening, we are just not exactly sure when though. In other good news for non-TIDAL listeners, the album is set to come out on Apple Music/iTunes this Friday. There is no word on whether other streaming services will also have the album.
4:44 has surprised listener, and had overwhelmingly positive reviews across the web, with one major rapper — Kendrick Lamar — tweeting, "4:44. WOW. MASTER TEACHER."
