Days after getting all the details on 4:44, we learn when we may get a chance to see JAY-Z perform some of these new tracks.

It's been a pretty good start of summer for the newest member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame so far. Jay, along with wife Beyoncéwelcomed their twins earlier in June and then released details about the highly anticipated 4:44 album soon after. The rapper's first record since 2013 will be part of a first-of-its-kind partnership between Jay's streaming service, Tidal, and cell phone provider Sprint. Jay released a sample from a new track, called "Adnis," in support of the project, but fans will have to wait a few months before they can hear it live. Of course, we can't blame him, what's he gonna do leave Bey home with three kids?
