It’s been nearly 4 years since Jay-Z’s last solo album, and with his next venture dropping on July 4th here’s why you should care:
1. It’s Game Changing
Not only did Jay announce the album a mere two weeks before dropping it, but his joint venture with samsung has changed the industry forever. The technology company has already bought the first one million copies of the album, which they will make available for free download to the first million Samsung users. The venture is so big that it has forced the RIAA to change their rules about album certifications. As a result, Jay will be the first artist in history to go platinum in a day.
2. “It’s more traditional hip-hop”
Producer Rick Rubin stated that the album was “way different” than Kanye’s and stuck to a more traditional hip-hop route. With Kendrick slaying everyone’s existence this year by serving up the most real hip-hop albums in recent years, won’t it be nice to bob your head to the king once again?
*If Jay gives us another ‘Forever Young’; this time it will be UNFORGIVEN*
3. The album contains the sequel to ’03 Bonnie and Clyde’
Titled, “Part II (On The Run),. the song serves as the follow-up to the 2002 duet that started it all.
Are they still boyfriend and girlfriend in the song?
Who are they running from?
Ashanti and Nelly? Keri Hilson?
Is Blu driving the getaway car?
SO MANY QUESTIONS.
4. He Has A Song About Blu
There is nothing better than raw honesty from an artist. Jay has shown his soft side already with ‘Glory’, let’s see what that girls taught him about Bey, life, and more importantly himself.
If we’re lucky she’ll cry on this track to.
Just a shot of Timbaland, Jay, Justin Timberlake and Nas working on a track.
No big Deal.
