The album we've all been waiting for is finally coming to us! Jay Z will be releasing his 13th studio album on Friday, June 30 and it's entitled 4:44.
A couple of weeks ago, hip hop fans noticed posters that had "4:44" on them and everyone immediately began assuming that this meant that brand new Jay Z music was on the way. Thankfully, we were all right! Hov is preparing to gift us some fresh hot bars just in time for summer 2017. It looks like there will also be a visual component that accompanies the album, too. Hov's fans have already seen a clip of a video that features actors Mahershala Ali, Danny Glover and Lupita Nyong’o.
Reportedly, super producers such as Swizz Beatz, Zaytoven and more have been working on the new project with Jay for the past year. That only makes us even more excited about the fast-approaching musical body of work. This big news comes days after Jay became the first rapper inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Since his fans have heard about this new album, they've been bugging out...naturally. Take a look at some Twitter reactions to Jay's 4:44 album below.
