According to Variety, Jay-Z’s insta-platinum “4:44” album has been made available on Amazon, along with the full videofor the controversial track, “The Story of O.J.” The rapper’s Jay-Z’s 13th and latest studio effort also landed at Apple, with individual tracks available for $1.29 on iTunes or $9.99 for the 10-track album. It is not, as of this posting, available on Spotify. A physical release is also planned, with additional tracks.

“4:44,” which officially dropped on June 30, has already been certified platinum by the RIAA, based purely on Tidal streaming and Sprint download numbers.

Checkout Jay Z’s descriptions of song meanings:

“4:44”

“‘4:44’ is a song that I wrote, and it’s the crux of the album, just right in the middle of the album. And I woke up, literally, at 4:44 in the morning, 4:44 AM, to write this song. So it became the title of the album and everything. It’s the title track because it’s such a powerful song, and I just believe one of the best songs I’ve ever written.”

“Bam”

“The song ‘Bam’ with Damian Marley, it’s just jammin’, it’s just like the song. But it’s secretly Shawn Carter saying, ‘Man, you need a bit of ego.’ It was because of me and the things that I’ve done, this is JAY-Z saying you needed a bit of ego for us to arrive at this point.”

“Caught The Eye”

“‘Caught The Eye’ is a song that’s dealing with just being aware of your surroundings. There’s a line in it, and it says, ‘Your body language is all remedial, how could you see the difference between you and I?’ Just being so sharp about your surroundings.”

“Family Feud”

“‘Family Feud’ is about separation within the culture. Like, new rappers fighting with old rappers, saying all these things. So, the line is, ‘Nobody wins when the family feuds.'”
