JAY-Z released 4:44 Bonus, featuring the three additional tracks, “Adnis,” “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family,“ and “MaNyfaCedGod” featuring James Blake, on Tidal. While these songs were included in the physical release which came out on July 7, they have not been made available on a streaming platform until now. Fittingly, the songs dropped at 4:44 a.m. Saturday morning.
4:44 Bonus is the latest piece of content off Jay Z’s 13th studio album made available exclusively on Tidal. On Friday, Jay dropped the short film for Adnis starring Mahershala Ali and Danny Glover, and directed by Mark Romanek. Earlier this week, Hov released the latest installment in his “Footnotes” series, breaking down the meaning behind “Kill Jay Z.”
Of the three bonus cuts, the one that drew plenty of attention well before it was made available on his streaming service had to be “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family.” Earlier this month, Blue’s verse leaked online From bringing back “boom shakalaka” to proving to the world that she’s just like her father when it comes to the double entendre game with the line, “Never seen a ceiling in my whole life,” people were immediately loving her flow.
As for James Blake, the singer has been collaborating with the Carter family for a while now. Recently, Blake provided vocals for “Forward,” off Beyonce’s Lemonade album. You can hear the 4:44 bonus cuts here.
