After dropping mysterious posters all round Times Square, followed by a series of videos with Lupita Nyong’o and Mahershala Ali, Jay Z is officially back in the game with his thirteenth album.

Made up of ten No I.D-produced tracks, the disc 4:44 is available to listen to right now on Tidal. 


Marking Hova’s return to music, the new album features guest appearances from Frank Ocean and Damian Marley, as well as an apparent apology to wife Beyoncé.

The track entitled “4:44” addresses the infidelity rumors that started when footage emerged of Solange attacking Jay Z in a lift. He raps:

“You egged Solange on, knowing all along all you had to say you was wrong / You almost went Eric Benet, let the baddest girl in the world get away … I don’t even know what you woulda done, in the future, other niggas playing football with your son.” 

Jay-Z then goes on to say “What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate / You risked that for Blue?” in reference to his daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

Coming four years after the release of Magna Carta… Holy Grail and just a few days after the artist’s induction to the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, you can check out 4:44 just below:
