Jay Z Announces New Album, “4: 44”

Bernard Dayo

Rap maestro Jay Z has announced his next studio album, 4:44. The rapper shared a snippet of new track “Adnis” earlier tonight in a new trailer for the mysterious film of the same name, 4:44, which stars Mahershala Ali and Danny Glover. The album—and film—are both out June 30. It’s currently not fully clear if 4:44 will be a visual album, or if the film is a companion piece. The album will be a Tidal exclusive.

Last year, Jay released a song called “spiritual” in response to police brutality. He’s appeared on several tracks in recent months, including Frank Ocean’s “Biking” with Tyler, the Creator, DJ Khaled’s Shining with Beyoncé and I Got the Keys with Future, Pusha T’s “Drug Dealers Anonymous,” and on the remix of Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s “All the Way Up,” among others.
