There is a new theory behind why JAY-Z might have named his 13th album 4:44.
In the past, Hov explained that he woke up at 4:44 a.m. and penned the title track for the album. However, a fan recently sparked a new theory on Twitter, by pointing out that it may be connected to The Standard hotel, where Solange Knowles infamously attacked him in an elevator at a Met Gala after-party in 2014.
“I’m at The Standard where Solange beat Jay-Z’s ass in the elevator,” tweeted a fan. “THE ADDRESS IS 444. I AM SHOOK.”
