Rop mogul Jay-Z is going to release this thirteenth solo album later this month. You might be expecting that it would be an exclusive release for Tidal, the music streaming service that’s owned by Jay-Z himself, and you wouldn’t be wrong. The rap mogul’s fans will be able to stream the new Jay-Z album online via Tidal starting June 30th. The new album is titled 4:44.

This is Jay-Z’s first solo album since Magna Carta Holy Grail which was released four years ago. It goes without saying that his fans will be anxiously waiting to hear the music that he has cooked up in these past few years.

It’s obviously not surprising to see that Jay-Z is making his new album exclusive to Tidal, even though there are other music streaming services out there that have a significantly larger user base than Tidal.

Exclusive releases are one of the ways with which music streaming services bring in new subscribers. Plenty of Jay-Z fans who haven’t subscribed to Tidal as yet will do so on June 30th when the new Jay-Z album drops.

Tidal subscribers will be able to stream the album exclusively starting June 30th. It’s also going to be available to Sprint subscribers. Tidal has said that 4:44 is the first of many exclusive releases that will be available to Sprint customers as well.

If you’re wondering why Tidal is being so generous with Sprint, that’s because Tidal sold 33 percent of the streaming service to Sprint for $200 million a few months back.
