Jay Z's new album '4:44' will stream exclusively on Tidal

Jay Z’s new album is coming on June 30, and it will stream exclusively on the rapper’s music streaming service¬†Tidal.

The New York artist’s latest work, titled “4:44,” will join Tidal’s catalogue of music, but not everyone outside of the service’s current user base is out of luck.

Tidal is partnering with US carrier Sprint, whose customers will be able to enjoy a free six-month Tidal HiFi membership.

It is not yet clear when (or whether) Spotify’s 50 million and Apple Music’s 27 million users will get a chance to hear Jay Z’s new LP. Last year, fellow rapper Kanye West debuted his own “The Life of Pablo” exclusively on Tidal, too, although¬†the exclusivity was lifted six weeks after the initial release.
