Jay-Z drops new album 4:44 – the planet gasps
The masterful rapper’s answer to his wife’s visual album “Lemonade” is here and all we can say is…YASSS!
The lyrics on the mogul’s 14th studio album, out now exclusively on Jay’s own streaming service Tidal, heavily address the rumors of infidelity, that elevator incident and a potential Kardashian dis?!
Truthfully, all 10 songs contain one main ingredient that is palpable – raw emotion.
The title track seems to be sending fans into the greatest frenzy, however, with what seems to be a direct response to one of the most popular and stinging “Lemonade” lyrics, in which Beyoncé advises her cheating man to go “Becky with the good hair.”
“I’ll f*** up a good thing if you let me, let me alone Becky,” raps Jigga on 4:44.
“You did what, with who? / What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soul mate? / You’d risk that for Blue?”, referencing the couple’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
What’s evident is that, not only is this album a bona fide piece of art on its own – when coupled with Bey’s “Lemonade”, it’s an iconic work of genius, propelling the already incomparable artists to new heights on unreachable mega-stardom as the first husband/wife due with albums that play off each other, play at each other and are sure to be conversation mainstay for a long time.
Oh, and PS., we now hear the new Carter twins are named Rumi and Sir.
Some world they’ve entered, right?
