After just a little warning and several ad promos, Jay-Z has released his mysterious 13th album, 4:44.
The new album comes five years after Jay dropped 2013’s Magna Carta…Holy Grail. Produced entirely by No. I.D., it features 10 new tracks with guest appearances from Beyonce, Frank Ocean, Damian Marley, The-Dream, Kim Burrell and even a few family members.
Jay’s mother Gloria Carter appears on “Smile”, while his daughter Blue Ivy shows up on “Legacy”.
In addition to the music, 4:44 also releases with an animated visual piece dubbed “The Story Of O.J.”, directed by Mark Romanek and JAY-Z.
4:44 is available exclusively to Sprint and TIDAL customers.
