JAY-Z's engineer Young Guru initially said that the bonus tracks for 4:44 would only be available on the album's physical versions, but Hov has now added them to Tidal.
"Adnis" sees JAY-Z writing a letter to his father Adnis Reeves, who died in 2003 from liver failure; the song was the first glimpse that fans received from the album when a snippet played in a commercial with Mahershala Ali and Danny Glover that teased the project. (On Friday, July 28, JAY-Z used Tidal to release the full music video.) There is also the James Blake-assisted "MaNyfaCedGod," and "Blue's Freestyle/We Family," which features a cameo from JAY-Z and Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
The three tracks originally were reserved for physical copies of 4:44, but they're now available for streaming in Tidal. Even with the bonuses added on, the album remains a taut 46 minutes.
REVOLT TV is the exclusive TV home for the Footnotes series of mini-documentaries that has accompanied the music videos for 4:44. This Thursday, watch the Footnotes for "Kill Jay-Z" on Thursday, Aug. 3 at 7 p.m.
