No longer a Tidal exclusive.

Less than one week after JAY-Z unleashed his incredibly relevant 13th studio album 4:44 on us, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) had certified it Platinum.

In other words, it was more of a PR stunt than an actual accomplishment, but when you’re JAY-Z you call the shots.

Another eyebrow raiser? That 4:44 was a Tidal exclusive for its first week, but that’s all changed! The record is now available to stream on Apple Music, can be purchased on iTunes and physical copies are up for grabs at Best Buy. The physical version includes a couple of bonus tracks, including one where Blue Ivy raps (check that out here).
