Instead, the album will be available from 30 June for subscribers of Jay-Z's streaming service Tidal and United States phone network Sprint, through what is being hailed as a first of its kind deal between both companies. After weeks of anticipation, the project is reportedly a new Jay Z album. But it will also be available existing Tidal users worldwide, and also to new Tidal users outside of US, so you won't necessarily have to be a Sprint subscriber to get access to the new album. Outside the US, 4:44 will be available to stream only on Tidal for now.
New and existing Sprint customers can take advantage of the complimentary six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi at Sprint.TIDAL.com or by visiting a Sprint store. It was soon revealed that 4:44 was, in part, an upcoming Tidal-only film starring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong'o and Danny Glover.
It's been a very big weekend for Jay Z.
Not exactly screaming confidence in the record, Tidal is also throwing in six months of free Tidal HiFi for Sprint customers.
