As reports continue to circulate about the possibility that his wife, Beyoncé, has given birth to their baby twins, a teaser of Jay-Z’s new album has been released.

Sprint unveiled a snippet of a new song called “Adnis” on Sunday night as a teaser for the upcoming album, 4:44. The track was set to footage of a boxer (Mahershala Ali) and his trainer (Danny Glover) as Jay raps, “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.”

Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’o also appears in the clip further sparking the belief that this will be a visual album much like Beyoncé’s highly-acclaimed Lemonade.

Why Sprint, you ask? President and CEO, Marcelo Claure explained, ”Today is an exciting day to be a Sprint customer. Jay Z is a global icon and we’re giving customers an incredible opportunity to be among the first to experience his new album.”

Apparently, both existing customers and those who switch to Sprint phone service will have exclusive access to the album along with a free six-month trial of TIDAL HiFi. The partnership will also support an educational initiative aimed at providing internet access to 1 million low-income U.S. high school students.

That’s absolutely fantastic and this is all exciting but… will this album be anywhere near as good as Lemonade? We’ll have to wait for June 30 when it drops to find out.
