Roc Nation has responded to rumours Jay-Z will release a new album this year.
Reports of a new Jay-Z project started on Sunday afternoon after artist and director Hidji World implied he was on set with the 99 Problems singer.
He posted an Instagram Story, writing he was “shooting today” with Jay-Z. In another story, he teased a photo of a first-take film slate labelled “JAY Z -2024 ALBUM.” On it, Hidji's name was written as director, and Leroy Farrell was listed as director of photography.
When asked to confirm or deny the release, Roc Nation said; "That’s news to us."
Jay-Z’s last full-length solo album was 2017’s 4:44. In 2018, he released Everything Is Love with Beyoncé as The Carters, which was the first joint set from the husband-and-wife duo.
The 54-year old has previously talked about only wanting to make music when it's about something meaningful.
"I’ll say I wanna make music, but it has to be something important,” he told Gayle King last year. “I don’t wanna just make a bunch of tunes. That’s not gonna serve me. It has to mean something, you know? It has to mean something to a larger society.”
