Jay Z's New Album Will be Released This Month

Hip hop legend to drop 4:44 by month's end

June 19, 2017

Just as he welcomes new twin babies into the world and receives the highest honor a songwriter can receive, hip hop legend Jay Z has released details on his latest project, including an expected release date and where we can get our hands on it.

The announcement of 4:44, the rapper's first album since 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail, comes after weeks of mysterious posters and ads popping up all around New York City. The mystery was revealed to be an album as part of a Tidal-only film. The entire project is also a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Jay's streaming service, Tidal, and cell phone provider Sprint. The news about 4:44 also came with sample of a brand new Jay track called "Adnis."

THe album is expected to be released on Tidal on June 30. The rapper will hit the road in support of 4:44 later this summer as well.
