HAVEN’T HEARD JAY-Z’S “4:44” ALBUM?? YOU’RE NOT ALONE!

GET ALL THE JUICE YOU NEED TO HOLD YOU OVER UNTIL IT HITS APPLE MUSIC HERE!

Jay-Z has just released his 13th studio album, 4:44 and it’s only exclusive to Sprint Tidal members!!!! I thought I could get away with downloading Tidal being a T-Mobile user—that got shut down quick! Well, being the journalist that I am, I am here to give you all the juice about 4:44, without even hearing the album.

Much like Jay-Z’s last album, Magna Carta Holy Grail was released exclusively on Samsung phones; 4:44 is exclusively only available to Sprint users. FML. So basically, if you have Sprint, I hate you.

4:44 is produced by no other than, NO I.D, who has also shown his presence on the last four of Jay-Z’s studio albums; the difference is that 4:44 is solely produced by NO I.D.

includes features from artists like Damian Marley,  Frank Ocean,  and Hov’s mother Gloria Carter. Don’t fret, you can also catch Beyoncé’s  vocals on “Family Feud” and The-Dream vocals on “Marcy Me.”
