'4:44' physical release to include bonus tracks
Young Guru reveals that “Adnis” will appear on the new edition.
Fans of JAY-Z’s latest album, 4:44, shall rejoice!
Following the release of the MC’s audio bible, sole producer and legendary beat wizard Dion “No I.D.” Wilson revealed, in an interview with Rolling Stone, that more tracks are on the way. When asked if the LP was purposefully released with only 10 tracks, Wilson revealed:
“Yes. There’s three more songs that are coming out as bonuses. James Blake came in and joined into the process. There’s more coming shortly that’s equally as revealing.”
While 4:44 showcased Jigga at his most, it comes as no surprise that more records are on the way. Early promotional material for the album came in the form of thirty-second teasers, the first being “Adnis,” starring Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali and the incomparable Danny Glover. For fans, the title rang familiar as the given name of Jay’s estranged father Adnis Reeves.

Seemingly confirming the news was Young Guru, Jay’s longtime engineer, who took to Twitter to announce that 4:44’s physical edition will include “Adnis,” and possibly other songs he’ll sneak onto the release if fans keep quiet.
While a release date hasn’t been confirmed, 4:44 is currently available to Tidal and Sprint customers.
