While we now know that “4:44” is the title of Jay’s forthcoming album, it unclear what the title means. Maybe the time his new twins were born? Whatever it is, 4:44 will release as a partnership with Sprint, exclusively to its subscribers and also via Jay’s streaming platform TIDAL.
4:44 will be Jay’s first new album since 2013’s Magna Carta…Holy Grail. Further details are unknown.
