Earlier this week, Jay Z was spotted in Kingston, Jamaica—more specifically, at the legendary Tuff Gong studios alongside fellow TIDAL co-owner and Roc Nation signee Damian Marley—and, naturally, it sparked even more rumors that the veteran rapper was at work on his thirteenth album.

Though Jay Z would likely never confirm the hearsay, Marley has. In a new interview with Billboard, the reggae artist revealed the reason for Jay's visit and their collaboration, saying:

"We did some work in the studio recently and he wanted to come to Jamaica to get a tour of the place. He's been to Jamaica before, but never Kingston. So he wanted to come down to Kingston and asked us if we could have been there to show him around and give him a tour musically, in terms of our history in Kingston."

Marley continued, adding:

"I did some work with him for some stuff that he's working on. I'm not really sure of the details of his project in that sense, but we worked on some music together. I've been a fan of his music since he came out. We've never done any musical work together. So that was a joy to finally work together musically."
