New Jay Z album, "4:44," coming June 30; hear teaser clip of new song, "Adnis"

ABC News

Yes, 4:44 is a new Jay Z album and it's coming on June 30.

The album will be a Sprint and Tidal exclusive -- Sprint purchased 33 percent of the streaming service in January -- and fans will have to be Sprint customers or Tidal member to get it.

The official announcement from Sprint came after midnight Sunday follow a release earlier in the evening of a teaser video for what a previous teaser described as an NC-17 movie starring Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong'o and Danny Glover.

The 30-second video, which features black-and-white footage of Ali training as a boxer, is soundtracked by a new Jay Z song, "Adnis." 

There's not much of "Adnis" to be heard in the clip -- just an instrumental intro and the verse: “Letter to my dad that I never wrote/Speeches I prepared that I never spoke/Words on the paper that I never read/Proses never penned, they stayed in my head.”
