UPDATE: Jay Z's Entire '4:44' Album Will Be Produced by No I.D.
The long-rumored response to Lemonade is upon us.
No I.D., who is executive vice president of Capitol Music Group, and Jay Z have quite the chemistry together: “D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune),” “Run This Town,” “Success,” and “Fallin'” are just some of the collaborations Hov and No I.D. have done together.
Listening to the snippet of “Adnis,” they’re off to a good start.
See the original story below:
One could (and probably should) never knock the hustle of Jay Z. Days after being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (as its very first rapper) and declaring he’d be bailing fathers out jail on their day, The Man From Marcy appears to have yet another blockbuster up his sleeve.
Disguised as a trailer for a TIDAL-exclusive film starring Danny Glover and Mahershala Ali, 4:44 has been revealed to be Hov’s new album, and it’s arriving much sooner than we could have imagined. A second trailer for the project, released over the weekend, features roughly 30 seconds of new music before teasing the date “6.30.2017.,” which we can only assume is his due date. The song “Adnis,” featured in the clip, is named after his father. It’s yet to be confirmed, but the new album will likely be exclusive to TIDAL users and could be exclusive to Sprint users, as the service carrier has partnered with TIDAL to present the project a series of exclusive content from the rapper, according to Rolling Stone.
So yeah, 4:44 could be Hov’s most limited release to date. But time will tell. Stay tuned for more details to arrive in the weeks ahead. Won’t be long now.
