Barely two weeks after welcoming a set of twins with his wife Beyonce, JAY-Z has released the 13th studio album of his career and the first one in the last four years, 4:44.

The 10-track album has been much anticipated by JAY-Z fans who have been speculating for years when his next album would come out.

4:44 plays on the Carter-Knowles fascination with the number 4 as they both have their birthdays on the 4th; December and September respectively.

The album deals with infidelity allegations mooted by Beyonce on ‘Lemonade’

JAY-Z further explains he got the title when he woke up at 4:44am and started planning for the album.

The album deals with allegations of him cheating on his wife as it was rumoured on her album, Lemonade.

He addresses the issue directly by rapping, ‘I apologize, our love was one for the ages and I contained us,’ he raps, later adding, ‘And 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.’

4:44 was released exclusively on TIDAL, JAY-Z’s streaming service and will not be available anywhere else for at least one week.
