Even if you’ve been immersed in JAY-Z’s new album since it was released on Friday, you haven’t heard everything yet.
JAY-Z’s producer, No I.D., told Rolling Stone that there are three more bonus tracks for Hov’s 13th studio album, “4:44.” He hinted they’ll be available once the physical album comes out, and possibly as soon as this week on Apple and Spotify.
The album is currently only available to Sprint and Tidal customers
“There’s three more songs that are coming out as bonuses,” No I.D. said.
JAY-Z apologizes to Beyoncé on new album ‘4:44’
The album, which has been identified by fans and critics as JAY-Z’s response to his wife Beyoncé’s visual album, “Lemonade,” is full of self-reflection, apologies, and even some subliminal messages to other rappers and former friends like Kanye West. The rapper also revealed his mom is a lesbian in a duet with her.
It’s not clear yet what the three bonus tracks will reveal, but English singer James Blake is said to be involved.
“James Blake came in and joined into the process,” No I.D. added. “There’s more coming shortly that’s equally as revealing.”
Around New York City, the peach-colored “4:44” banner has been plastered on buses, taxis, and billboards to build the hype.

The physical copy of the album may be JAY-Z’s way of reconnecting with his older fans, who still keep hard copies of albums and haven’t upgraded to his Tidal streaming service. The album is expected to hit rival streamers like Apple Music and Spotify later this week.
Reps for the rapper did not immediately respond to requests for comment on when physical copies of “4:44” will be available.
