We’re less than two weeks away from whatever it is JAY Z has planned for us, and it seems like it’s all going according to plan. After all, as we now know from the past, JAY and wife Beyoncé love keeping their fans on their toes while keeping an air of secrecy surrounding their projects.
A couple of days ago, a commercial aired during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, hinting that it could be a short film of sorts. A few new billboards were spotted around New York City, stating that the project would be arriving on June 30th.
TIDAL added more fuel to the speculative fire after releasing a teaser trailer for the project, starring Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali, set to the tune of a new song from Songwriter Hall of Famer Jay titled “Adnis.”
Letter to my dad that I never wrote
Speeches I prepared that I never spoke
Words on a paper that I never read
Proses never penned, they stayed in my head
Watch the 30-second snippet below and keep it locked for more details.

EDIT: Thanks to a savvy visitor, Sprint — who recently struck a deal after purchasing a 33% stake in TIDAL — may have just let the cat out of the bag, accidentally. If you visit this link, a message pops up which reads “Get exclusive access to JAY-Z’s new album.”
We’ve taken a screenshot of the message just in case it gets taken down. So there you have it folks! It appears Jay will deliver his eleventh solo album — and first in four years since 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail — on June 30th!
