JAY-Z (now with all caps and hyphen) is giving us a fleeting glimpse of one of his latest tracks in another new trailer for 4:44.
While we don’t hear any of Jigga actually rapping, or even see him, the production sounds incredibly promising. Coupled with the visual of a young black man running in a shirt with the message “STAY BLACK” ironed on the front of it, the black-and-white footage is framed in a style comparable to his 2004 “99 Problems” video.
Does this mean 4:44 will arrive on Friday with a full series of music videos like Beyoncé’s Lemonade? We have only 48 hours to find out.
