Mr. Carter Arrives At 4:44!
The power couple celebrated the birth of their twins. Mr. Carter was rewarded a honor at the Songwriters Hall of Fame. And now this week, The Carter's broke more news to the ever so hungry junk food media, Jay-Z' s new album 4:44 is out.
With most of the production from veteran producer No ID. It was released on Friday through his social media music streaming Tidal.
It's been four years since the media mogul released an album. It's alleged that Jay-Z dissed Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton, Eric Benet, Dame Dash, Future, and Kanye West on the album.
Shawn Corey Carter and Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter are worth a cool $1.3 billions in total. The pair have three children. One daughter named Blue Ivy. The twins are named Rumi and Sir. They also trademarked the twins names.
On the 4:44 album, Jay-Z talks about his infidelity on Queen Bey. Sometime in 2014, Solange Knowles served the Jigga man a helping of "knuckle style chili" in an elevator and it sparked rumors of a pending divorce. Queen Bey kept it classy by drinking some "Lemonade," aiming at Jigga's alleged affair with Rachel Roy.
"You egged Solange on, knowing all along all you had to say you was wrong/ You almost went Eric Benet, let the baddest girl in the world get away ... I don't even know what you would done, in the future, other niggas playing football with your son."
He even said he'll probably die in shame knowing that his alleged cheating impacted his daughter.
"What good is a menage a trois when you have a soulmate/ You risk that for Blue?"
In the song, Smile, Jay-Z shares his personal struggles by his own mother Gloria Carter coming out as a lesbian.
"Mama had four kids., but she's a lesbian/ Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian," said Jay-Z in the verse. "Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate. Society shame and the pain was too much to take. Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/ Don't matter to me if it's a him or her. I just want to see you smile through all the hate."
The album's features include his mother, his daughter, and his wife.
Frank Ocean and Damien Marley are the big names listed.
The album is getting race reviews. Jay-Z, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and Drake so far have the most successful albums.
iHeartRadio, Sprint and Tidal are playing loops of the album to fans for a limited time. Remember you must signed up Tidal to hear the album. Mr. Carter's 13th album is already platinum.
Congratulations to Mr. Carter. You're an inspiration to me as a father, business mogul and entertainer.
Roc Nation lives on!
