Jay Z is gearing to let us all know why he sits on The Throne once again as it’s just been revealed that he’ll be dropping his new album 4:44 on June 30 as an exclusive to postpaid and prepaid Sprint members and existing Tidal users.
Tidal is also offering six months of Tidal HiFi free for new and existing Sprint users. The project remains secretive still as there are talks that some sort of movie or film with Mahershala Ali, Danny Glover and Lupita Nyong’o could be tied to the project. A snippet of the project was unveiled during the NBA Finals and now a new clip featuring a song called “Adnis” has now surfaced. In the song, you hear Jay Z speaking of his late pops, Adnes Reeves.
Marcelo Claure, Sprint president and CEO, stated, “Today is an exciting day to be a Sprint customer. 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. Our loyal, existing customers, and customers who switch to Sprint, can experience the album exclusively, plus access a complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi, giving them access to content they can’t get anywhere else.”
You can sign up here to get the advanced 4:44 album and subscribe to the Tidal and Sprint platforms.
As previously reported in May, Jay Z inched closer to billionaire status when he re-upped with Live Nation and signed a new $200 million, 10-year deal with the concert tour promoter. Hov and Live Nation first began their union in 2008. Jay Z reportedly will earn $200 million for the new deal, according to a person close to the situation, who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to publicly talk about the topic.
