Jay Z is preparing to release his 13th solo album on June 30th, and it’s going to be a Tidal exclusive.
There’s also a trailer for the new album, which teases a song called “Adnis” and features footage of the Ali/Nyong’o/Glover movie.
Watch the teaser for the Jay Z next album 4:44, featuring a snippet of a new song titled “Adnis.” Below:
The project—widely presumed to be a visual album.
This is the first of a line of Tidal music exclusives as part of the Sprint partnership. The carrier purchased 33 percent of the streaming service for $200 million earlier this year. “Jay Z is a global icon and we’re giving customers an incredible opportunity to be among the first to experience his new album 4:44,” Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said in a statement.
Earlier this month, billboards with the message “4:44” started appearing in New York City, leading fans to speculate about a new project from Jay Z. As part of the U.S. campaign, Sprint and TIDAL have pledged support to the 1Million Project, an educational initiative that will assist 1 million low-income U.S. high school students who are not connected to the internet at home.
This will be Jay Z’s first album since Magna Carta Holy Grail was released back in 2013. Jay Z has reportedly been working with producers including Swizz Beatz and Zaytoven over the past year, but there is no indication of what we’ll hear on the album.
