JAY-Z’s Physical Copies Of 4:44 Include 3 “Revealing” Bonus Songs. Here Are The Titles.
JAY-Z’s 4:44 has reached platinum less than one week after release. However, the party is just getting started for the album’s roll-out. What began as an exclusive to Tidal subscribers and Sprint customers is now coming to physical release, joining Jay’s 12 additional solo titles.
Producer No I.D. and long-time Jay engineer Young Guru had hinted towards bonus materials being found on the 4:44. Jay’s physical distributor, Universal Music Group, has confirmed these reports. On the UMG website, they announce the three additional songs as “Adnis,” “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” and “ManyFacedGod.”
A snippet of “Adnis” first appeared in a 4:44 promotional video. No I.D. confirmed to Rolling Stone that “ManyFacedGod” features British singer James Blake. “There’s three more songs that are coming out as bonuses. James Blake came in and joined into the process. There’s more coming shortly that’s equally as revealing,” said the ARTium producer and longtime Def Jam Records executive.
Blake joins an album that includes appearances from Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley.
Yesterday (July 5), Jay’s “The Story Of O.J.” video was added to YouTube after its own exclusive launch last week.
The UMG posting suggests physical 4:44 copies release tomorrow, July 7. Neither Jay nor Roc Nation have confirmed that date.
