Jay Z knows how to tease his fans.
The rapper dropped a mysterious teaser trailer for “4:44” during the NBA Finals game on Wednesday and Twitter exploded as a result.
The teaser is for the boxing movie “4:44” starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as a boxer, Danny Glover as his coach, and Lupita Nyong’o.
Fans had initially lost their minds because “4:44” is a Tidal-exclusive film. In the week leading up to the film’s reveal, billboards and ads appeared in major US cities and across the internet with “4:44” on them. The ambiguous promos had fans suspecting it was a new album from the rapper:
Jay Z’s last album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” came out in 2013 and, with rumours circulating of a husband-wife collaboration between him and Beyonce, the time, one would think, is ripe for new music.
Unfortunately, there is no release date set for the movie right now but the teaser trailer can tide fans over until then.
