Jay-Z's album '4:44' delves into his personal life

Music star Jay-Z's 13th solo studio album "4:44", which is his first LP in four years, has arrived and he seems to have dedicated a song to his wife and the mother of his three children, Beyonce. The album's title "4:44" appears to refer to Jay-Z and Beyonce's fascination with the number 4.

The rapper's birthday is on December 4, while his superstar wife's is on September 4. Their wedding anniversary is April 4, and they sport matching IV tattoos. The 35-minute album features 10 tracks, including the titular and deeply personal "4:44," in which Jay-Z hints at his relationship with Beyonce. He even apologizes for womanising, reported Entertainment Weekly.
"I apologize, our love was one for the ages and I contained us," he raps, later adding, "And if my children knew, I don't even know what I would do / If they ain't look at me the same / I would prolly die with all the shame." The rapper, who was recently inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, also mentions about miscarriages in plural.
"4:44" also includes references to the ups and downs of their love. "And if my children knew, I don't even know what I would do / If they ain't look at me the same / I would probably die with all the shame / 'You did what with who?' / What good is a menage a trois when you have a soulmate? / 'You risked that for Blue?'" JAY-Z says.
