The visuals to the track 4:44 certainly tells a story with a beautiful ending featuring Jay Z and wife Beyoncé.  They are shown performing on stage together followed by a shot of their daughter Blue Ivy.

In the ultimate lemonade response, Jay Z admits to the cheating as he states “If my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same, I would prolly die with all the shame / You did what with who? What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?”

The song sheds some light on how there were cracks in their marriage whilst at the same time showcasing footages of some of the issues in the state regarding African Americans.

Im The Man

50 cent

This 50 cent throwback is not a very long throw back. The original ‘Im The Man’ track came out in 2015 with Sonny Digital on it with 50. The song was released as part of the Kenan mixtape. The mixtape was part of the character promotion for 50 cents TV show Power, which he produced.

The ‘Im the Man’ track was re-released with Chris Brown on this version, a video was also released. The song has become more popular due to the addition of Chris Brown vocals and his verse.

The track is arguably 50 cents best release in 2016/17. We definitely hope to hear more club bangers and hits from 50. He hasn’t stated that he is officially retiring from releasing music.

Check out the throw back visual and comment on what you think of it.

This is Jay Z’s 13th studio album!

4442

The much anticipated project from Hov is finally here. Throughout this year there have been hints that Jay Z was going to be releasing new music. Even after Watch The Throne there was rumours that Jay Z had asked the producers he works with to start making beats for a new project. Many people thought that was for Watch The Throne 2 or another joint project.

With the relational theme album by his wife Beyonce, there was much speculation that he would respond to the cheating allegations in some way. And he does on the album named track 4:44. 

The album 4:44 is only available for streaming on Tidal or through Sprint, who partnered up with Tidal recently. The album has 10 tracks on it:

3.  Smile
5.  4:44
7.  Bam
8.  Moonlight
9.  Marcy Me
10.  Legacy

 

Kill Jay Z is based on how he feels about his relationship with Kanye West and hi thoughts on it.

The Story of OJ has already become popular over social media as the visual, which is apparently only available on Tidal, has been posted on many peoples pages. In the song, Jay Z talks about being black and the financial progression which is possible for African Americans if they invest and be smarter with their money. This track really educates fans and listeners on the importance of financial freedom.

4:44 is exactly four minutes and forty four seconds long. On this track, Jay Z responds to Lemonade and provides an apology for his infidelity.

On Legacy, Jay Z provides a history lesson on the Carter familia and describes how each member of his family has supported him, vice versa.

Overall there has been rave reviews on Jay Z’s latest project and many appreciations for his educational and advisory voice.

This album was solely produced by No ID, so this indicates that there may not be another Kanye West and Jay Z collaboration for a while!

The album also features artists such as Beyonce, Frank Ocean and Damien Marley.

As this album can only be officially streamed via Tidal, we have do not have a link for you to watch the visuals or listen to the album. Instead we have a link for the lyrics from Rap Genius. We hope you enjoy listening to 4:44!
