Jay Z Announces New Album '4:44'

Jay Z announced Sunday night that his new album, entitled 4:44, will drop June 30 — but there’s only one way to get it (legally) if you live in Canada.

The collection is only available to subscribers of Tidal, the streaming service partly owned by Jay Z. After a 30-day free trial, the service costs Canadian customers between $10 and $20 a month.

In the U.S., Sprint customers will have access to a free Tidal subscription so they access the album. The mobile company recently bought a one-third share of the streaming service.

There’s been no word when — or if — 4:44 will be available from other sources.

In 2013, Jay Z’s album Magna Carta… Holy Grail was available to owners of Samsung Galaxy devices three days before it was released.

    We love the Dude Perfect videos. This one's pretty neat as it has been filmed with some LEDs and glow-in-the-dark objects. Perfect, as always!
