(FreshAsFrankie) After the historic induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and becoming a father of newborn twins, Jay Z has announced his thirteenth solo studio album, 4:44, which will be exclusively available to Sprint and TIDAL customers at 12:01 am ET on June 30th.
Along with the announcement comes a 30-second-long promotional video for a new song named after the Brookyln MC’s late father Adnis Reeves. The video stars Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali playing a boxer shot in high contrast, while Hov raps:
“Letter to my dad / that I never wrote / Speeches I prepared that I never spoke / Words on a paper that I never read / Proses never penned they stayed in my head.”
