JAY-Z’s thirteenth studio album 4:44 was released last Friday, June 30 as an exclusive to pre-existing Tidal and Sprint subscribers. It was soon after made available to new Tidal members (those who subscribed after June 26). Now, the full-length has surfaced on Apple Music and iTunes, as Pitchfork reports.
The album is currently not available on Spotify, and it doesn’t seem likely it will show up on the streaming platform, especially after all of JAY-Z’s albums disappeared from the service earlier this year.
A physical release of 4:44 is expected, as it was confirmed by JAY-Z’s long time engineer Young Guru. Track “Adnis,” which was teased in a trailer for the album but left out of the digital version, is set to appear on the physical edition. Despite its limited availability, the RIAA announced 4:44 had achieved Platinum status less than a week after its initial release.
