JAY-Z's '4:44' Lights Up Twitter: See the Reaction
JAY-Z albums don’t just fall from trees. So when the hip-hop legend and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee dropped 4:44 at the stroke of midnight, the pull was predictably immense.
Hov was the top “trending topic” on Twitter for some hours after his 10-track album was released to subscribers of Sprint and TIDAL (and spun across 160 stations through an exclusive arrangement with iHeartMedia).
The Twitterverse went into a spin cycle as fans with twitchy thumbs poured over the lyric sheets for disses. And many figured 4:44 was Mr Carter’s response to his wife Beyonce’s revelations in Lemonade, which itself began trending on the social media platform.
Read some comments below.
