Celebs Are Going Crazy Over JAY-Z's '4:44': See the Tweets
JAY-Z's 4:44 may have just dropped at midnight today (June 30), but Twitter users have already logged 810,000 tweets mentioning the rapper or his new, highly-anticipated album. And a whole host of celebrities -- including fellow MCs T.I., Wale and Talib Kweli -- are among those celebrating the release.
The album, a follow-up to 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail, was unleashed overnight as an exclusive to JAY-Z's streaming service Tidal, in partnership with Sprint. According to Twitter, some of the most-mentioned tracks on the site since the album drop are "The Story of O.J." and "4:44."
And as fans dissect the album's relation to Beyoncé's 2016 Lemonade -- which put the couple's marriage troubles on full blast -- there have been nearly 230,000 tweets mentioning Beyoncé in the same time frame.
